Business Process and Project Management

PP10

Introduction

In the past, the general accord in organisations was that business management and project management were two separate activities. More recently, the functional value of project management became the skill to provide an efficient and effective way of delivering a job and completing tasks to support business management. This course is designed to equip the delegates with the tools and knowledge to evaluate and change processes to enhance their organisational performance through successful project management.

Who should attend

This practical and thought-provoking course is designed for managers, operational professionals, and all those who are involved in driving change within their organisations through successful project management.
