WHY YOU SHOULD ATTEND

Even though projects nowadays involve a complex web of individuals and professionals pulling together resources and ideas to achieve commonly defined goals, there are nevertheless, increasing expectations on them to achieve these goals within organisational budgets and costs outlays, stakeholders needs and organisation vision and strategy, which essentially make effective management of projects very crucial to their overall success.

Indeed, sound project management skills play a pivotal role in goal accomplishment in any organisation. This is particularly true of development project teams, made up most times, of professionals from diverse backgrounds and from different departments and at times from different organisations.

Project management emerged because of the growing demand for complex, sophisticated, customized management of goods and services and the exponential expansion of human knowledge. As a set of principles, methods and techniques for effective planning of objective-oriented work, it provides an organisation with powerful tools that improve the organisation’s ability to plan, organize, implement and control its activities and the ways it uses its resources.

Members of the management are, in most cases, not privy to the selection of team members. However, they still bear the responsibility of mobilising and managing the team to achieve the project development objectives. Other project team members also do not have a say regarding the composition of the team. The enormity of this responsibility requires them to all work together to achieve the project objectives and also to be open to ideas and continuous learning in the art of leadership and team building.

In addition, it is often now the case that many project team members are drawn from the civil service. They may have never being involved in the management of projects and as such may lack the requisite skills, knowledge and experience. This therefore highlights the need for project members’ competency building in project management strategies, tools and approaches. As such, from project initiation all the way through to project completion, this training workshop will focus on all the tools, structure, techniques, and insights necessary to ensure holistic total project management and overall project success.
