Course objectives & General description

Everything changes, and nothing remains the same. More than ever, this is true for the competitive environment of many organizations. Many of these changes are managed as projects; unique efforts that require the organization of resources of different disciplines, capabilities and organizational units. Project management is becoming increasingly important to execute projects in a controlled way. Budgeting, deadlines, working with multi-disciplinary teams, personal strengths and weaknesses; these are all challenges a project manager needs to deal with.

This course prepares you for participating in or managing projects.  Next to a theoretical background, the course also offers a practical approach. You will develop your skills in project management in a hands-on project simulations in which you will perform various team assignments and will act as project manager in various settings.

The participants will also experience the dynamics and the teamwork that make working in projects so special. The course is built around real-life cases from the participants and the trainers’ experience and includes inputs from the most used project management standards, change management and team development. The theme of sustainability adds a unique dimension to the course, as it makes the participants aware of the role of projects and project managers in realizing sustainable change. The content has been developed from the perspective of projects as temporary organizations that realize change in, or between, organizations. The central question is: How can a project manager, together with his/her project team successfully and sustainably realize the project’s outputs and outcomes?
