Are you responsible for routine tasks that are expected to be delivered by specific dates? Do you also get larger tasks assigned to you to complete? Do you feel that some tasks could have been done better sometimes? You are not alone. These days, almost everyone is being tasked with small projects, and even though the projects appear small and routine in nature, they are still important and their impact is felt by the whole organization.
The solution is to view these tasks as projects and manage them the way project managers manage their projects. This course was designed with you in mind. It goes over the key concepts of project management in a gentle and fun way. It walks you through all the key steps from when the project is first initiated or requested, to how it is planned, executed, monitored and then finally delivered and closed.
You will learn by practicing each concept immediately after the instructor has explained it to you. You will work in small groups and apply simple techniques and proven methods in project management that have been used by millions of project managers around the world. You will feel confident that you can take ownership of your next big task and succeed.
This course is composed of short instructor led lectures, followed by practical hands-on group workshops and exercises to practice the concepts being covered. As such, a good deal of participation is expected from students.

Course will be conducted over a period of 5 days, starting from 8:30 AM and ending at 4:30 PM* daily, with allowances for short refreshment breaks, prayer time, and lunch break. *For in-house courses, timings can be customized by mutual agreement.
