About this Course:

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.

Mike is on of the UK's leading project delivery experts. He has many years experience of managing projects and integrating change in many companies of varying sizes. Mike has had key roles in managing multi-million pound projects for Vodafone, General Motors, BAA and Transport for London. Organisations of all sizes have benefited from his skills in integrating complex change. You will get real results as his highly practical approach simplifies complex ideas.

Mike also has over 20 years' experience of training project managers, throughout the UK and in Europe and the US. He is the author of thirteen top-selling business, management, and personal effectiveness books, including four on project management topics:
