Intensive Workshop in Project Management


Whereas the Workshop is constructed around the needs of the participants, the needs expressed often centre around the management of schedules, stakeholders, and risk, and therefore patterns have emerged to the content which is covered in most Workshops. The sequence and emphasis may differ.

Project Management is first and foremost about effective management, and secondly about the tools and techniques pertaining to projects. Whilst addressing specific considerations for effective management, the Workshop recognises that inspiring leadership and good administration are relevant to other spheres of management as well, and thus focuses primarily on tools and techniques for the planning and execution of projects.

The Workshop therefore typically features topics such as:

  • the project lifecycle;
  • project authority structures;
  • time, cost, and scope management
  • the management of risk;
  • stakeholders and communications; and
  • configuration management.

Amongst other techniques, reference is made to:

  • product-based planning,
  • the WBS (Work Breakdown Structure),
  • Gantt charts,
  • activity sequencing with an overview of the CPM (Critical Path Method), and
  • activity-based costing.

Exercises and group activities will help you to learn the principles, methods and techniques quickly. In addition to this practical training, you are also introduced to:

The Workshop briefly discusses Project Management software (such as Sciforma and Microsoft Project). The relevance of affiliate bodies, standards, methodologies and certifications such as those of the PMI® (PMBOK® Guide, PMP®, CAPM®), APMG (PRINCE2® Foundation & Practitioner), SAQA (NQF), GAPPS and Agile are also explained, along with the Project Manager Competency Development Framework of the PMI®.
