Programme Content

The participant will be able to integrate the learning outcomes in order to develop and manage a project plan whereby a specific team produces an identified, once-off, substantial deliverable, within specified time, cost and performance targets. Presentations methods include group work and case studies, and individual and group participation are important components of the programme structure. The following subject areas are covered:

  • Orientation to project management and project planning
  • The formulation of the scope of a project
  • Time management for projects
  • Project monitoring and control

Programme Structure

Participants will be required to attend a classroom-based study block of 3 days from 08:15–17:30. Based on pre-reading and class discussions, groups are required to submit responses to case studies. Individuals or groups must prepare a project plan on a topic of own choice. The purpose of this assignment is for participants to demonstrate an understanding of all the principles and techniques presented in the programme and to confirm their ability to apply these in a practical situation. The assignment will be marked against an assessment matrix. An individual assignment requires an aggregate outcome of 50% with a sub-minimum outcome of 30% for every chapter of the assignment. Group assignments require an aggregate outcome of 60% with a subminimum outcome of 30% for every chapter of the assignment.
