Description

What makes working in projects so special ? To understand project management one has to separate these two words from one another. Or, as the Project Management Institute puts it: a project is a temporary endeavour undertaken to create a unique product or service.

Session 1 - Project Organisation

In this session you will:

  • gain insight in the fundamentals underlying every project methodology
  • learn how to structure your project and organise your project team
  • receive a template document to draw up a project execution plan
  • collect a lot of practical tips and tricks based on real-life examples

Session 2 - Scheduling & reporting

In this session you will:

  • receive examples of tools for planning and consequent progress reporting
  • experience the process of a work breakdown schedule
  • get a demonstration of the Microsoft Project scheduling software
  • collect again a lot of practical tips and tricks based on real-life examples

After finishing this module you will be acquainted with concepts like "Scope", "Project lifecycle", "Issue & change management", "Steering Committee", "Sponsor", "Gantt chart", a.s.o.

This workshop is a unique opportunity to learn how projects are run professionally and thus get a headstart on future job interviews where you can demonstrate your vocabulary, insight and attitude to future bosses and colleagues.
