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!

Free tools from Activia

With Activia, you can check your skill level with our unique, free Test Your Skills tool, which ensures you book on the correct course.   This is invaluable when putting together training programmes or bespoke courses for numbers of delegates.
