Designing and Managing Projects

Increasingly, it is easier to get support for a project rather than long term funding.  Projects are usually fixed term, have a specific scope and and focus and require particular skills to manage them.

What will I learn?

  • How to turn an idea into a project.
  • Tools for project design
  • Managing key events in the life of your project.
  • Project leadership.
  • Managing the project’s end.

By the end of the session you will be able to: 

  • Plan out a project
  • Use a range of tried and tested techniques
  • Manage key project challenges.
  • Improve how your organisation tackles both large and small projects
