Project-based businesses have over the last two decades become the normalized method which most competitive businesses operate. Strictly operations based business objectives are increasingly subject to a defined project plan, with specified deliverables, within specific time and cost constraints.
Our Project Management Training Course focuses on improving a Project’s success.
Project Management is not only for project managers, but is a vital skill for all business partners within organizations. It is not uncommon for business people who do not officially hold the title of project manager, to undertake small to medium sized projects as part of achieving their business objectives. The latter is echoed in the sentiment of MC Botha: Head of PDPM at Stellenbosch University Business School:
“Africa is facing a critical development phase and is, as the World Bank says, on the eve of an economic explosion. The need for skilled project managers to successfully complete various types of projects, ranging from small projects and partnership projects to mega government projects, in diverse business sectors will only continue to grow in the foreseeable future. “
Those involved in the process of project management may be stakeholders, business partners, the project team or team lead. An understanding of project management concepts, tools and techniques is vital to enabling project success and adding business value across the board.
In many organizations, managers involved in various sectors of the business have silently slipped into the unofficial role of project manager. Pressure from stakeholders, scope creep, poor planning, lack of formal training and undefined processes – all combine to increase the probability of project failure! Resulting in increased cost, time wastage and low employee morale.
