This highly participative EuroMaTech Essentials Of Project Management training course will enable you to develop project management skills and knowledge, in order to deliver small to large scale projects within your organisation. Learning will focus on how to apply planning processes and the proven tools used to make sure the customer and supplier chains work in harmony within the project environment. Skills and capabilities will be developed from project initiation, though execution and to closure.

The development of reliable estimates, from the concept and planning phases, are of critical importance for the decision to proceed and they provide the basis for time and cash flow projections or forecasts. Unreliable time and cost estimates will result in significant overruns later in the project lifecycle when it is too late to contain them. In addition, many projects subsequently fail to deliver the required quality as a direct consequence of poor estimating - inaccuracies result in lower quality workmanship and materials.

Participants attending the EuroMaTech Essentials Of Project Management training course will develop an understanding of the following:

  • Project management overview
  • Project lifecycle
  • Stakeholder management
  • Depreciation analysis
  • CAPEX/OPEX analysis
  • Project planning & scheduling
  • Cost estimation & analysis
  • Project cost management
  • Resource management
  • Project contract management
  • Risk and change management
  • Overcoming issues
  • Project monitoring & control

  • Understand the different types of estimates used to progress project cost estimating
  • Identify different types of contracts, and understand risk between contracting parties
