Project Management

Gestion de projet

Description

In an environment ruled by competition and performance, managers must increasingly use new tools to improve the planning and control of their project activities and resources. Project Management is a course that enables straightforward and comprehensive training in project management.

This course presents an easy to use methodology to drive projects effectively and quickly in any field. This methodology is supplemented by practical and operational advice to ensure that project managers do not forget anything.

We have included a section that enables project leaders to organize communication and manage stakeholder behaviour in order to successfully complete the project under winning conditions.

The course book contains document templates for managing all aspects of a project, from structure to communication, planning and risk analysis as well as project assessment.

Target audience

All managers and administrators and their teams who have to lead administration, management, operation or production projects.
