Our last skills event

“Start Your Project Well”.

Our intensive workshop, with a range of content, taught delegates some vital project management techniques, which are certainly useful as businesses embark on new projects or want to avoid waste and delays in existing ones.

The workshop helps delegates avoid common project pitfalls, providing hints, tips, tools and templates to get their project started effectively, efficiently and well.

Topics included Project Driver and Benefits, Stakeholder Identification and Management, Project Risks and Strand, Activity, Milestone and Stage Planning.
