Tools & Techniques for the Management of Projects

Tools & Techniques for the Management of Projects

Suitable for business managers and staff as well as those moving into project management.

A 2 day intensive course
The course is delivered by Simon Harris, PMP, CGEIT, P2-RP, MoR-RP and ex PRINCE2® examiner in an engaging, relaxed and fun atmosphere interspersed with plenty of short breaks and short exercises.

You Will Learn To
A structured approach to running a project that is based on Simon’s 30 years of experience using the world’s published best practices in project management. Despite the short duration topics are taken from no assumed knowledge to practitioner level. Thus the sessions are rich in content and intensive.


  • Standard Full Course: 2 Days but 3 days (or 4!) is an easier time with more exercises and discussions
    0900 to 1630 formal class hours (1630 onward informal/ optional time for discussion of “topics raised on the day” and demonstration of relevant software tools if wanted), 1530 finish on last day.
