Home » Seminars » Project Management » Effective Project Coordination & Management

Introduction

Projects frequently fail, not because of a lack of technical skills on the part of those executing the project, but because of inadequate coordination, integration, communication and control of project activities, people, stakeholders and contractors. This is due mainly to the inability of many project managers to successfully apply the tools and techniques of modern project coordination and control to their projects, as well as to manage and motivate the human resources assigned to the project. 

In addition to the financial losses suffered by the organization, many such projects also fail to deliver the required quality of outcomes intended for the project, as a direct consequence of the inadequate identification, definition, planning and control of client or end-user requirements. At this level of management, project and program managers interface to a much larger degree with the strategic business goals and objectives of the company, and are typically involved in strategic business and financial decisions affecting the overall success and efficiency of the organization. 

Hence, integration and beneficial utilization of organizational resources, and the application of project portfolio management skills, become critical to the effective and successful delivery of projects. 

The following and the highlights of the training seminar:
  • Coordinate and integrate projects, people, suppliers, and stakeholders
  • Proactively identify the requirements of the project in terms of the business objectives
  • Understand what it takes to be a successful and effective project coordinator
  • Select and manage teams and plan and control projects successfully
  • Sidestep the most common project management pitfalls and problems
  • Understand and practice effective project coordination techniques in successfully completing and handing over projects

This brand new training course will significantly enhance the skills and knowledge of delegates and improve their ability to plan, manage, and control projects. The material has been designed to enable delegates to apply all of the material with immediate effect at the office.

Objectives

The primary objectives of the training seminar are to help delegates to: 
  • Gain knowledge of techniques used in project planning and control
  • Systematically define, design, and integrate end-user requirements in the project
  • Identify risk sources and learn how to mitigate potential risks and deal with uncertainty
  • Learn how to administer project documentation and reporting
  • Develop effective performance monitoring and control systems
  • Effectively select, develop, and manage human resource

Training Methodology

Delegates will develop fundamental project management performance and control skills and knowledge through formal and interactive learning methods. The training course includes team projects, applicable case studies, group discussion and critical analysis of video material based on actual large construction projects. 

Additionally, the training seminar does not assume prior knowledge of the topics covered in the course. New concepts and tools are introduced gradually to enable delegates to progress from the fundamental to the more advanced concepts of project management.
