This course is a combination of our two courses Advanced Project Management and Risk Management for Project Managers, which are also available separately.
Days 1 to 3 – Advanced Project Management
Initially we focus on taking seasoned project managers to the next level by exploring the knowledge and skills necessary to successfully manage increasingly complex project issues to meet desired goals and objectives. Assuming a mastery of project planning, this workshop extends skills to the remaining project management processes covering areas such as avoiding mistakes when executing and controlling a project, dealing with evolving stakeholder expectations and using trend analysis to measure, control and react to project performance, thereby improving project outcomes.
Days 4 and 5 – Risk Management for Project Managers
It could be argued that the difference between a great PM and a brilliant PM is how they manage risk in their projects. Whether you agree with this or not there is no denying that following an effective risk management process will increase your chances of success in that project. In this section we aim to assist participants in better managing uncertainty and threats. Comprehensive in scope and designed for all stakeholders who want to proactively mitigate the effects of risk, this course covers all the fundamental aspects related to risk management, including planning, identification, assessment, quantification, analysis, mitigation and tracking & reporting. A wide spectrum of risk management tools and techniques will be explored, along with the disciplines of psychology and human interaction to decrease the risk of stakeholders not committing to your project.
