Starting a project is its most critical phase. If anything is missed out at the beginning, it will have to be caught up on later – usually at a high cost. This training will enable you to successfully initiate a project and, so doing, create a solid foundation for your project and its success.

What you will learn

  • Project management as an approach to successfully running a project
  • Defining a project and creating a clear project assignment
  • Designing project start processes
  • Setting up and conducting a project kick-off workshop and a project sponsor meeting
  • Analysing the project’s context: project boundaries and project context analysis
  • Planning the scope of a project: project deliverables plan and work breakdown structure
  • Setting up timelines: project milestone plan and Gantt chart
  • Developing resource and cost plans
  • Establishing an organisational and communication structure
  • Defining work packages and allocating tasks
  • Overview: identifying and managing risks
  • Documenting projects
