Project Management has become critical in the success and competitiveness of public and private sector companies. Enterprises achieve their goals through projects and effective project management. In addition, the increasing complexity of work and demands for "more with less" place special demands on the project manager and need for a project-based approach.

This Project Management Workshop will focus on project leadership, communication, team building, conflict resolution, negotiation, cost & budget, measuring performance, and change management.

After completing the workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Better prepare project schedules
  • Develop project measures and advanced approaches to project control
  • Lead and motivate project teams
  • Manage project risk
  • Financial budgets and constraints

This program is open to members of NCLGISA only.

"I have a full understanding of the way projects should be done. Not only did I learn project management but there were also other tips that I took away from the class. I think anyone that has anything to do with projects should complete this course."
