Project Planning

Course Overview

The key to a successful project is ensuring you have a realistic and time bound plan. Creating a project plan should be the first step taken when starting a new project. Despite being the one of the most common reasons a project/programme may fail, project planning is often ignored in favour of beginning the work quicker. However, many people fail to realise the value of a project plan for saving time, money and many problems.

This training course will provide you with the tools you need to create an effective project plan to increase the success of your project and aid in successful decision making by senior stakeholders.
