    Project Management School: 3 - Project Management for Sponsors and Leaders (1-day course )


    DAY 1

    Project Management and Risk:   How to apply project management appropriately to the level of risk.

    All good project management starts with the questions, “what are we trying to achieve and why are we doing it?” (Sometimes there is a third, “why now?”) This first day provides practical learning outcomes that can be applied immediately. Project management is a response to risk, in this first day we will explore project management controls including the lifecycle and milestones. Your facilitator will share real world examples of where project management is applied well and poorly and will invite participants to share how they might apply effective project management back at the desk.

    The outcome of this first day is that participants are able to evaluate the specific project risks, assess and recommend an approach and develop a high-level response (project plan)


    DAY 2

    Scoping and Planning: Developing and contracting a clear understanding of the objectives and the plan to deliver against them.

    This second day will focus on developing further the high level plan into a reliable set of baselines (Time, Cost and Quality/Scope) You will work together to use work breakdown and decomposition to create strong and traceable connections from objectives, benefits and success criteria through deliverables to work packages, activities and tasks. The ‘work breakdown’ structure and dictionary form the foundation for all project management endeavour: from this point it is practical to develop predictable estimates for duration, effort, cost and contingency.

    The outcome of this second day is that participants are confident to have informed and honest conversations about and contract on, how long, how much and why.


    Day 3

    Managing Time and Budgets: Developing the time and cost baselines with clear basis of estimation and controls.

    This third day takes participants into the world of estimation, modelling and controls. Most estimates fail because they are presented as a single number when in fact an estimate is a range (between most optimistic and most pessimistic) and is influenced greatly by the amount of time and the approach that is used to develop them.

    This is a practical day with real world application and debate: accuracy takes time but is conducted often, in a time bound way: having the confidence and the competence to share this risk enables effective application of control and contingency.


    Day 4

    Agile PM and Change Management: Delivering in a fluid and changing environment with agile and change control tools.

    This fourth day provides practical tools to participants that enable delivery in fluid and fast changing environments. Traditional project management is based on some proof of concept (waterfall) so when there is no prior experience, or the environment is changing quickly the approach must be more agile and must have baked in an effective change evaluation and response approach.

    This workshop challenges participants to flex the delivery approach to respond to different constraints (short time frame, high degree of uncertainty, fluid stakeholders) Participants will apply a variety of approaches and leave with the confidence to deliver or lead delivery teams on sprints and change management workshops.


    Day 5

    5 Communication and Stakeholder Management: How to gain and maintain a guiding coalition of support throughout the project lifecycle.

    Change and project management is almost always delivered by people, for people and impacts on people. Most project managers will agree that 70% and more of their time is spent managing stakeholders and communicating. This fifth day will demonstrate how to develop an effective stakeholder identification and management process and then how to create and manage stakeholder communication plans and strategies.

    This day is based on actual examples and will encourage participants to plan and execute effective strategies to gain and maintain a guiding coalition for change.

  • Adrian Pagdin


    For 22 years, Adrian has diligently and enthusiastically applied project management to many varied and challenging initiatives: From developing change management capability in retail and corporate banking to developing and launching a high-profile brand for one of the world’s largest FMCG brands and rom creating the first 24x7x365 multi-lingual, first line support call centre for a telecom’s giant, to building and launching Holiday Inn branded hotels. Adrian has worked extensively in global financial services, as a consultant and a trainer, to understand and develop the capability and confidence to realise competitive advantage, minimise risk and normalise regulation. He has written two books, several detailed case studies and simulations on project management and is a vocal proponent of stakeholder management and leadership as the key component of delivering change. Adrian is a certified Project Management Professional and has taught and supported hundreds of students to successfully gain PMI (project management institute) professional qualifications. Project management exists as a response to risk; the greater the risk the greater the controls (project management): in an increasingly evolving world of technology, politics and skills it is not enough to have a project or change management department. Adrian believes that the skills to evaluate, articulate, plan and deliver business benefits must be a core part of every organisational team.
