Project Management - Live Online

Date:
Jun 16 - 19, 2020
Application Deadline:
Jun 10, 2020
Venue:
Live Virtual


The Project Management discipline has matured into a sophisticated set of soft and hard management processes, tools and techniques, which enable managers to complete their projects according to not only the customary time, budget and quality constraints but also the successful delivery of intended benefits that contribute to the positioning and profitability of the organisation. However, despite the availability of best practice techniques, most projects globally tend to fail because of poor planning, inadequate allocation of resources, inefficient scheduling of time, and poor understanding of the context or at times merely lack of commitment from senior management.


The 4-day focused online programme on project management is intended to provide executives with positively new insights into the project planning, control and execution processes. Through simulations and multiple hands-on experiential exercises, the participants will master the project portfolio and gain a comprehensive perspective on managing and executing business projects.

LIVE VIRTUAL LEARNING FOR EXECUTIVES
The 4-day experiential programme is intelligently adapted to live virtual format imparting a brilliant mix of theoretical concepts, insights from practice, constructive tools and techniques in a highly interactive and engaging e-learning environment.


The participants get direct access to LUMS faculty and engage with peers through interactive class discussions, simulations and group project work that helps reinforce learning and networking among the group.

 

 

 

The programme analyses organisational frameworks needed for effective project management and identifies the techniques that can be used to avoid some of the costly mistakes that many managers make while handling complex, business-critical projects.

Topical coverage includes:

  • Project Planning and Life Cycle
  • Strategic and Business fit of projects
  • Project Leadership
  • Introduction to MS Project
  • Project Risk Management
  • Management of Cross Disciplinary Project Teams
  • Project Monitoring and Control
  • Project Closure
 

 

This programme is specially designed for managers, engineers and other senior employees responsible for delivering important projects.
