Project Management

Project management can be defined as the application of processes, methods, skills, knowledge and (personal or team) experience to achieve the objectives of a project.

The project itself can be looked at as a unique activity which is frequently in a state of change, undertaken to achieve planned objectives. Such objectives are often defined in terms of outputs, benefits and outcomes.

This workshop will give participants an overview of the entire project management process, as well as key project management tools that they can use every day.
