Understanding Project Management

A successful Project Manager must simultaneously manage the four basic elements of a project: resources, time, money, and most importantly, scope. All these elements are interrelated. Each must be managed effectively. All must be managed together if the project, and the project manager, is to be a success. This workshop is not intended to take you from a supervisory position to that of a Project Manager. However, these three days will familiarise you with the most common terms and the most current thinking about projects.
