14th July, 2016 – 1 Full Day
Although formal project methodologies have their place, for smaller projects and smaller companies they are just too complex. This workshop takes Project Management from a very pragmatic and practical perspective, focussing on the specific needs of making projects successful in smaller organisations or for smaller projects. This is project management for busy people in busy businesses.
In most businesses – whether FTSE 100 or high tech start up – a large proportion of work is undertaken in smaller projects. Despite them being important to the business, these projects lack the luxury of a full time team of ‘project professionals’ and are often conducted on an informal basis. There is sometimes a fear that using project management methodologies will be costly, bureaucratic and will stifle entrepreneurial activity and innovation. This workshop will dispel that myth, introducing specific approaches that are right for your projects.
There are no prerequisites and no pre-course work is required.
