Project management is becoming increasingly important across all sectors of the economy. A competent project manager and a project team consisting of experienced, well-trained professionals are essential to the success of a project.

This course is aimed at members of project teams who have little or no project (management) experience. The course enables them to use the key performance indicators – time, quality, cost, and resources – in structuring and managing projects effectively. It is based on the procedure defined by the Project Management Institute (PMI) and the internationally applicable standards of the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK).
