Project management has developed into a sophisticated set of tools and techniques which can help the managers to complete their projects on time, within budget and contribute to the overall profitability of the organisation. Many projects fail or overrun their cost and time estimates because of poor planning, inadequate allocation of resources, inefficient scheduling of time or simply lack of commitment from top management.

The 4-day focused programme on project management will provide executives with a new dimension on project planning, controlling and execution. A brilliant mix of theoretical concepts, practical tools & technique and experiential learning, the programme provides a comprehensive perspective on managing and executing business projects.


The programme analyses organisational framework 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 projects. Topical coverage includes: 

  • Project Planning and Life Cycle
  • Role of Project Manager
  • Introduction to MS Project
  • Risk Management
  • Managing Cross Functional Project Teams
  • Conflict Management
  • Project Monitoring and Control
  • Project Closure


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