Good project management is of the art of getting a successful outcome using the resources available. This is more important than ever in health and social care where managers are under increasing pressure to deliver better outcomes and greater efficiency in every aspect of their work.

Project management requires a specific set of skills, some of which we possess naturally and can learn to use more effectively. But it also requires knowledge and a well-defined approach.

Over the course of three virtual sessions we will explore the common principles of project management, covering the journey from inception to completion. Delegates will need to take part in all three sessions.

The session covers the rationale for projects, the stages of project management, the role of the project manager and gives useful hints and tips for effective and efficient project management. The day has been designed as an introduction to project management suitable for those who are new to the role, or have recently taken on responsibility for projects or is new to a project team. It is also suitable for anyone looking for a refresh of the principles of project management.

At the end of the training sessions, delegates will understand:

The principles of project management
How to define a project and ensure each stage is clearly understood and implemented
Key roles within projects
Critical steps in preparing for a project
How to make the most of time and resources
How to identify and mitigate risks
How to understand if a project has been successful or not
A selection of commonly used tools to support the project.

The online training will be delivered via three two hour sessions and delegates will need to take part in all three sessions.
