Project Management and its Role in Effective Business
Implement effective project planning and execution to boost business performance
How can you become a better project manager, and what are the principles driving effective project management within an organisation?
This ExpertTrack has been put together to offer you the chance to cover everything you need to know about good project management.
You’ll be able to learn how to deliver strategic change and transformation through the management of projects in organisations.
You’ll also be able to develop your understanding of the stages, tools and techniques required for project initiation, planning, execution, control and closure.
What makes an effective project manager?
This ExpertTrack explores what it takes to successfully plan and execute a project while considering the wider business context in which the project operates.
You’ll consider a typical day in the life of a project manager and learn the key competencies of an agile project manager, as you explore scrum and waterfall models, project initiation, phases and extended life cycles.
Understand change management and minimise business risk
You’ll have the opportunity to learn the differences between qualitative and quantitative risk analysis (including the Probability and Impact Matrix) and how to make a risk management plan in order to control, minimise and prepare for potential project hazards.
The project management skills and techniques within this ExpertTrack can be useful across a variety of positions and industries, whether you’d like to start or improve a career in project management, or you just want to add the methodologies to another role entirely.
