GENERAL INFORMATION
ABOUT PROJECT MANAGEMENT ESSENTIALS TRAINING
What we do, and how we work, to make sure you get the most from the courses you attend
Project Management Skills - Too Often Neglected

Project Management is now used in every industry sector. Whether it's a full-time operational role, or ad hoc projects like installing a new telephone system or organising an office move, the person, or team, that plans, executes, and reacts to change, plays a major part in the quality of the outcome.

Businesses, and key employees in particular, need training in order to master the necessary skills so they can react to continuing changes in their environment, even when projets have been thoroughly set up and planned.

Yet it is a surprising fact that despite the often mission-critical importance of this role, the overwhelming majority of people involved in the management of projects are not qualified, and a huge number have never had any specialised project management training of any kind. No wonder things go wrong!

Who are our courses intended for?

First of all, if you need training on Microsoft Project software, visit our Microsoft Project training page.
And if you need certified training for PRINCE2®, visit our PRINCE2® training page.

Our courses are designed to be invaluable to new or aspiring project managers, or those who have fulfilled the role without having been trained. These people and/or their employers will also not want the workload associated with formal qualifications. (Though our courses are ILM endorsed and certificates can be provided at a small additional cost.)

The courses provide a solid understanding of the concepts, the tools used and the importance of good team management: ideal for acquiring professional skills in the shortest possible time.

Activia's courses for Project Management

Our project management courses are designed to cover the key skills necessary, in the format which suits you:

Setting Up Projects For Success
This introductory course is suitable for prospective project managers. It is also relevant to staff who might have taken on some project management responsibilities as part of their role. These people may be administrators or members of a support team. It will help them to understand key terminology, show them the benefits of a project, and introduce them to tools they'll need to perform effectively within their role.

Tools For Effective Project Execution
Once your staff have attended our introductory course they will need to learn the skills which will help them with implementation of their projects. This course will expose them to three stages of the project lifecycle. Preparing basic schedules, Gantt Charts, Budgets and Risk Management are just some of the areas we cover on the day.

Managing Productive Project Teams
Whilst our other courses focus on the more technical aspect of project management, this one tackles the difficult subject of managing teams. To begin with it looks at how delegates should choose their staff, then shows how to get the most from these relationships so they go on to build a team that's effective and properly rewarded.

Project Management: Fast Track
This course is drawn from the essential elements of the Setting Up For Success and the Tools for Effective Execution courses, and is ideal for anyone who wants to learn the basics of project management within a very short timeframe. Attendees are likely to be people who work in a support role or as an administrator or assistant, but are involved to some degree in a project.

More about training with Activia
