In today’s global and dynamic business environment, the need to quickly deliver on new business initiatives is becoming a critical competitive success factor. Increasingly, organisations are using projects to introduce new products and innovations to the business environment. Hence, effectively managing projects, tight schedules and budget is becoming an important business imperative. Organisations need to quickly assemble human resources, focus on objectives, and deliver results.

The aim of this seminar is to provide valuable ideas and insights that will help those that work on projects to do a better job serving the organisation, provide value, derive enjoyment from the project, and inspire all other project stakeholders. The programme will introduce participants to core project management principles and  equip them with skills required for effective management of organisational projects. This course will support participants in taking their performance to a higher level of effectiveness, responsibility and leadership. 

The programme offers an immersion into the knowledge and competencies for effective project management and leadership. Skills will be built through targeted lectures, readings, presentations, peer group learning and case studies, discussed in study groups with the aim of introducing new ideas and theories that challenge participant’s existing perspectives. In the process,  participants will learn how to use project management practices to deliver value to the organisation. Emphasis is placed on the use of modern computer software packages for planning and monitoring.

The programme is composed of three learning modules. Each module will address a set of core managerial skills required in the lifecycle of a project. The programme will  comprise sessions covering the nine bodies of knowledge outlined in PMBOK® Guide: project initiation; project charter and scope; work breakdown structure; costing; scheduling; resource planning; communication; risk management; monitoring and control; stakeholder management; change management; procurement; human resource issues; and closing.

This is a management programme that is also offered by competing institutions. However, most of these competing programmes are tailored towards helping participants obtain  professional certifications. The LBS version of this seminar has survived over 18 years because of our focus, structure and unique delivery approach. We employ a diversified team of experts, including practitioners and academics to deliver the programme. It is delivered in such a way that professional managers are equipped with practical skills required to lead effective project teams.
