As a project manager you need to handle many things at once; people, stakeholders, resources, budget, assistants, technical issues. In addition, knowing how other teams are doing is essential so you don’t fall behind. It is a juggling activity and as such requires a well-practiced skill. Fortunately, there are many principles that can be used for a successful head start. This practical course will help you to learn the skills of a successful project manager quickly and efficiently.
Many companies are realizing that the traditional project management principles are no longer applicable in today’s extremely dynamic and demanding environment. A fixed approach of planning is no longer a good method since it is very difficult to anticipate everything in advance and respond to it in the plan. Instead, more agile planning methods are required to accommodate for changing markets, technology and resources over the course of a typical project.
As a result, new project managers must be systematically taught on best practices and established management techniques. In this course, you will understand the role of the project manager as a broker of information. The emphasis here is on the day-to-day running of a project as opposed to leading a team using emotional skills. You will learn how to manage time, resources, cost, risk and quality using a variety of practical hands-on exercises.
Course Level: Beginners &Intermediate

The Philosophy behind Project Management Training Course:
The best way to know what to teach in a project management course is to have some previous experience of dealing with both small and large scale projects. At LeMark, we continuously deal with projects and we know what it takes to quickly release products and meet deadlines. Our motivation in designing this course was to put together the most critical tricks of the trade in a training package so Project Management trainers can quickly pass on the skills to people who need them.
