Course Description

This module starts by looking at the basics of project management. 

The first section emphasises the importance of defining exactly what the project is designed to achieve, on the need to satisfy a specific business need, and then focusing all the planning on creating the required output.

The later sections then look in turn at the various stages of the project. Section 2 describes the key planning stages. These are perhaps even more important in a project than they are in day-to-day work: after all in a project you only get one chance to get things right.

Section 3 then looks at implementing the plan.  How can the project manager ensure that all the many elements of the project contribute effectively to the whole project? How can you ensure that a delay in one team’s work does not have a knock-on effect on the whole timetable? Perhaps most important of all, how can you plan all of the various activities so that you achieve the project deadline?

Finally, Section 4 starts by describing the processes of monitoring performance and output by individual teams and across the whole project. You’ll then see a brief description of how the project team can assess the problem and plan changes that will bring the project back on track. Finally, we’ll consider what actions must be taken before the project can be handed over to the internal or external customer. How does the project manager assess whether the final output satisfies the original requirements, and what can the project team learn so that they can improve their performance on future projects.

Learning outcomes are:

·         Explain what is meant by a project, and describe the key components and processes

·         Describe the stages of a project from identifying a business case through to planning the work breakdown structure

·         Use a variety of techniques and tools to create an efficient and effective project plan for implementation

·         Monitor project progress, take action to identify and correct problems, and close the project.

The Postgraduate Certificate Courses are short online courses that can be completed between 5 hours - 3 months. The courses can be started at anytime and the study time is also flexible.

Candidates are expected to have a minimum of 50% in their test assessment for them to have successfully completed the programme after which they will be issued a soft copy of their certificate via email.
