Project Management for the Office Professional

This one-day course has been designed to provide office professionals with the essential knowledge to effectively plan, implement and review their projects, using just a few essential checklists and key techniques. The course will motivate and instill confidence in PAs, administrators and secretaries
who are involved in planning and implementing projects (e.g. events, seminars, new processes and the like). It enables you to learn and practise new skills in a risk-free environment and is matched to the typical size and complexity of the projects you are most likely to be asked to manage.

Is it right for me?

Suitable for office professionals who are new to the management of smaller to medium sized projects or who have had no formal training and want to have a formal grounding in project management at their level. This course is not suitable for delegates already proficient in the use of standard project planning techniques.
