Operational management of a project - Selecting the right tools and methods
The course is for:
- professionals working on demanding and large-scale projects.
- which tools and methods to use and how to ensure they will be effective.
The course is 2 days (12 hours) spread over several months.
Also included are Crossknowledge online lessons.
This course combines online courses and face-to-face case studies: methods and tools are acquired individually (using recognized and proven teaching resources) and their use is verified with professionals experienced in project engineering.
Learners commence the course with a project of their own.
Throughout the course everyone uses the tools and methods that they deem useful and relevant for their project.
The final review is a chance to verify (and even modify) what has been used/implemented and to gainskills in project review.
Course level: Basic
The course is intended for professionals working in project management.
Prior professional experience is recommended.
