B2B Skills

You are a busy leader or manager who is responsible for, or involved in, delivering business projects and initiatives in your business. To be successful you not only have to deliver on time, within budget and to specification, but also manage the varied expectations of a range of stakeholders.

Successful project management is not just about tools, techniques, plans and software.  It’s also about engaging others and inspiring them to work with you to deliver results. If you want to complete projects successfully, then this programme is for you. You will learn how to manage expectations, work with a variety of stakeholders and deliver real value to the business. You will also learn how to apply project management principles and skills to your advantage as well as how to avoid common pitfalls that delay projects and prevent successful delivery.

Benefits

By the end of this programme you will be able to:

  • scope a project and set achievable goals
  • understand the key roles and responsibilities in a project
  • engage stakeholders and get people on your side
  • build workable plans that are achievable and enjoy widespread support
  • monitor, co-ordinate and control projects
  • look ahead, anticipate and overcome problems
  • deliver projects in full, on time and within budget.

Approach

We use case studies and exercises to explore participants’ current approaches and thinking so that they can benchmark themselves and understand how to develop. Our practical tools and techniques can be transferred directly back to the workplace.

Who should attend?

Anyone who is currently, or about to be, involved in leading or managing a project, or a significant task where the application of project disciplines would be advantageous.
