Project management is not just about setting up a Gantt chart on your laptop. A successful project should be planned in collaboration not isolation.  This programme will show you how projects as diverse as process improvement, client handling or improving customer services, can be successfully completed by combining soft skills with the hard techniques of project management. Discover how to empower and involve your people, overcome common reasons why projects fail and use project management techniques to implement change successfully.
