What will you gain?

The means to make a step-change in your personal performance.

Overview

You need to have the project and stakeholder management skills to lead and steer large and diverse projects such as an acquisition and associated due diligence or a major systems implementation. Most projects have an extensive group of stakeholders both directly and indirectly involved in the project. Project and stakeholder management skills are also highly relevant to more routine ‘projects’ such as year end reporting and the budget process.

This workshop will help you:

  • define a project and specify its outputs
  • map out the stakeholders and proactively engage and leverage their input and manage their reaction
  • plan to complete the project within budget, on time and to the required quality
  • implement the plan, taking into account team issues, monitoring its progress and taking corrective action
  • evaluate a project and hand over the completed work
  • understand the advantages and common pitfalls of project working
  • action planning and self evaluation

"A CPD certificate of completion will be provided by BPP Professional Education Limited upon request, following attendance."
