From Ideas to Results
This is a practical and highly interactive two-day workshop focusing on the skills you need to manage any larger and longer-term task on your ‘To Do’ list.
You may not be called a project manager but the skills of scoping and planning work, getting buy in from stakeholders and delivering both fast and accurate results are essential for anyone looking to move on in their career.
Particularly popular in graduate and first-line manager programmes, this course has modules on how to establish what the end user really requires, how to plan multiple lines of concurrent activity, how to delegate without authority and how to make time for project work in your hectic daily schedule.
Delegates will be encouraged to apply techniques to a ‘live’ project during training and will leave with a detailed action plan for adopting and embedding more effective approaches. A follow up telephone coaching session with the course tutor is available for any who request it.
It’s perfect for you if you:-
- have a job that demands or rewards initiative
