Effective Management of Projects Course


United States of America (USA)

17 - 21 Jun, 2019  5 days

Follow Event


USD 4,500

This course equips delegates with an understanding of how to manage a project in the most effective manner can mean the difference between success or failure.  The fundamentals of effectively managing a project from start to finish requires a team of individuals with different talents and skills. Those people are responsible for planning and executing the project objectives and that takes more than just labour and materials. Each project follows a Project Life Cycle and every project has certain phases of development. 

Planning is key to project management success. Choosing to rush through or ignore the project planning process can be a formula for failure. A clear understanding of these phases allows managers and executives to maintain control of the project more efficiently.

This course is registered with the Project Management Institute (PMI)® R.E.P. Programme

As an R.E.P., GTC has been approved by PMI to issue applicable Professional Development Units (PDUs) for its Training courses. PMI allows credential holders to apply PDUs to the maintenance of their credentials. One (1) PDU is equivalent to one (1) contact hour of Training.
