  2. 2. Project Management Project Management Seminar Outline Seminar Leader Rob Verkerk, MBA, DipBus, PMP (Project Management Professional) Mob: 027 290 1069 Overview This course deals with the fundamentals of project management. It covers methods of planning projects; organisational structures and information management for project teams, project leadership and conflict management; risk management; scheduling and cost control. Intended Participants Occasional Project Managers: The course is intended to develop a competency in the basic skills, tools and processes of project management. These are applicable to any manager or employee who finds themself managing a project from time to time. They are also useful in many areas of general business life – anywhere that would benefit from discipline, planning and forethought. Project Team Members: Attendance on the course gives people who work on projects an understanding of the environment that they work in and some idea of why they are asked to comply with project disciplines. Professional Project Managers: Professional project managers should also find the course useful as a refresher and an opportunity to discuss and reflect on their approach to project management. Approach Course work comprises two distinct elements: - coverage of project management concepts and frameworks through structured presentations - coverage of practical examples and topical issues through case study, practical exercises and group discussion. Participation Class participation is essential to a course such as this. Participation includes asking questions in addition to answering questions. Participants should be prepared to discuss the presentations and cases during the course. The quality of the responses and discussion is more important than the quantity. © Rob Verkerk 2009 ii
