Do you need to manage a project?

And do you want to deliver it on time, on budget, and to requirement?

If you are new to project management – or just want a refresher, this course will give you all the basics and more.

Project management has become a vital element of business life. Success for both you and your organisation will depend on good project management skills.

How do you set up to succeed? This seminar shows you the practical tools, techniques and advice you need.

What will I get?

You will get over two and a half hours of high-quality video – not just a PowerPoint with a voice over.

It is based on Mike’s best selling three-hour live seminar and contains over two and a half hours of video, and a wealth of additional templates for you to download and adapt to your work. These will help you to manage your projects practically, for greater control and more success.

If you want to deliver your next project on time, on budget and to specification, you can’t afford not to take this course.
