Strategic, Lean & Best Practice Project Management

Learn how to manage project success with proven best-practice techniques
  • In a fast paced and competitive world of business, 90% of projects over a $1M budget, exceed both the budget and timeline.

    Major projects from various industry sectors such as the infrastructure, healthcare, telecommunications, oil & gas, science and technology are crucial to the success of the businesses and the economy. Although scale and complexity increase with major projects, a lack of foresight in anticipating challenges often contribute to project failure.

    This course introduces you to proven, practical tools and techniques for managing projects, and provides insightful solutions to compelling problems faced by companies with a portfolio of projects and complex systems. The course delivers strategies for:

    • How to manage uncertainties of all projects, including long-term, large-scale, and multi-million dollar projects.
