Project Management Skills for Office Professionals

  • 6 CPD Hours Apex Building, Blackthorn Road Sandyford Business District D18 (map)

Learn proven techniques to manage office projects from planning to completion

This CPD certified MasterClass is ideally suited for office professionals who are new to the management of smaller to medium sized projects, and/or have had no formal training in the discipline of project management.

The course will benefit those who are looking to adopt a straightforward approach to managing their projects, who just need to understand what project management is about and only has a day to do it. Also anyone who has to work with others to deliver products or services to tight deadlines and wants to learn the secrets of success. 

We will strip away the myths and give you simple project techniques that you can apply immediately in your workplace to improve your personal effectiveness and increase the success of your key initiatives. You will learn how to practically approach each project, and you will learn the best approaches to communicating your point of view, and how to tackle unforeseen problems and resource challenges.

You will also get a chance to engage in hugely practical exercises on the day, and take home a full course pack to refer back to after the course.
