Poor execution of projects often leads to significant delays and according to the PMI, only 56% of strategic initiatives actually meet their original goal and business intent.
Today’s organisations are operating in an increasingly complex global environment which has led to an increased demand for project practitioners who can deliver objectives on time and within budget. Reacting quickly to a rapidly changing business landscape is key to an organisation’s competitiveness and key project management principles, tools and techniques can help support this.
This programme will develop you as a well-rounded project and programme leader, focusing on the key areas of risk management, project economics and critically, the importance of people and project teams in achieving success. Live industry projects play a key role in ensuring you can relate your assessments back to your workplace. Taught over 18 weekend sessions over 2 years, you will be taught by experienced academics and expert practitioners and have the added benefit of learning with fellow project managers from a wealth of different backgrounds and experiences.
