GRASP Workshop in Project Management

GRASP is a framework for introducing focused improvements to an organisation’s Project Management, based on international standards and best practices. A GRASP Workshop is an easy choice for management and HR practioners who need Project Management training for a group.

GRASP Workshop in Project Management - A short course in Project Management - Corporate training

GRASP is an acronym for five circles of concern and focus:

goal-directedness
risk reporting
authority
scheduling
process integration

These circles are important in all projects, regardless of standard or methodology. During a GRASP Workshop, we typically draw from the PMBOK® Guide, PRINCE2®, Agile methods and CCPM.

What is a GRASP Workshop?

A GRASP Workshop is held over either 2 or 3 days, and leaves participants with a clear departure point, plus tools, techniques and methods for improving their management of projects. The teaching methods are based on research into how adults learn best.

2-day Workshop: We cover the five focus areas, and the group identifies an area to focus on after the Workshop.

3-day Workshop: In addition to the above, participants may also produce some of the actual artefacts (such as documents, templates and schedules) needed for current projects.

Choosing a Short Course in Project Management for Your Team - Document

Project Management is an organisational discipline.

Organisations’ needs differ.

There isn’t just one recipe for Project Management, but certain elements are important in most.

Key competencies are needed for Project Management to run well.

Some training methods work much better than others.

Scheduling software like Microsoft Project has its place.

Improvements take time, and they demand focused effort.
