Project management is the discipline of initiating, planning, executing, controlling and closing the work of a team to achieve a specific goal.
Projects are normally the result of internal and external changes to the business, which require action and may result in either long or short-term interventions.
The workshop is designed to provide you with a proven process, structure and skills enabling you to manage your first project or to enhance your current project management skills to add even more value to the process.
