This is our most popular course. It is designed to give new project managers and project team members the essential tools they need to deliver successful projects. We cover the complete project lifecycle, from initiating, through project planning project planning and execution, and to project close-out.

As well as a great learning experience for an individual, it is also suited for “jump-starting” an entire project team about to embark on a project. Like our other courses, it can be “customized” to your organization’s environment.


Participants will gain practical knowledge and skills to be able to:

* Use the terminology and processes of modern project management – project scope, time, cost, and communications management.
* Prepare a Project Charter and Project Plan.
* Facilitate team discussions in preparing project plans and in executing projects.
* Utilize project management templates.
* Value the benefits of a consistent project management method.


The Project Management Essentials course is suitable for individuals who are:

* Responsible for managing smaller projects.
* Participants on a project team of any size, especially those who have not yet been exposed to the tools, techniques and terminology of formal project management.


You will receive a course binder containing copies of presentation slides, exercises and suggested solutions.
