Practical Project Management Workshop 3 day
About this course
Practical Project Management Workshop 3 day was designed and developed originally for our corporate clients. This unique workshop is now available as a public event.
This workshop is consistent with PRINCE2 and PMI principles and for delegates seeking a good practical grounding in the principles and fundamentals of project management, yet not requiring a professional qualification. Delegates will learn valuable skills for managing whatever type of project they may be involved in.
With emphasis on a very practical programme of ‘activity-based’ learning, delegates will leave feeling confident in their ability to manage projects, as well as appreciating some of the broader aspects of change management and stakeholder engagement.
Delegates will learn a range of skills, techniques and approaches that will give them a structured approach to project management, and thereby greatly enhancing their contribution to any project team.
Pearcemayfield’s skilled facilitators have extensive expertise in providing project and change management training and consultancy. We have designed this content-rich learning programme to help you learn in a way that is engaging and informative.

Have a deeper insight into the challenges of change management and embedding project driven change into organisations.
The design of this 3-day learning programme, which, for in-house deliveries, can also be tailored to particular client needs and challenges, will cover:
• The fundamentals of project management and the role of the project manager - principles gained from years of project management experience
• Establishing projects – business cases development, the organisation of projects, plans and planning, understanding the project lifecycle, and getting started in a controlled way.
• Controlling execution – monitoring, controlling and reporting, change control, risk & issue management, delivering quality, working with project teams.
• Principles of successful change, stakeholder analysis and engagement
• The wider world of project management
The course is very ‘hands on’ with a very strong emphasis on learning by doing. A case study forms the backbone of the practical work.
This is a non-accredited workshop. There is no concluding examination.
