Before we define the term of project management, we should know what is the definition of project itself. A project is temporary. It has a start and end point and thus has a certain scope that requires a particular service to generate desirable results. Also, a project is unique. It follows specific procedures and steps designed based on a very particular and clear goal. Therefore, unlike typical work environments, people who work on various projects often are from different organizations and they usually don’t work together. Such characteristic of project makes the role of project managers even harder, as they need to manage a changing group of people who come together for only a limited period of time yet have to be able to work together smoothly and efficiently. Therefore, project management is to apply specific information, traits, skills, methods, and techniques in order to deliver on time, on budget, and desirable results. The knowledge of project management mostly covers the following list: integration, cost, scope, quality, HRs, communications, schedule, procurement, risk and stakeholder management. Through the project management essentials training course, we help you gain sufficient training about each of these areas to develop comprehensive knowledge about project management.
All the projects you have worked or will work on are similar in one aspect; projection of ideas into new endeavor. And there is one ever-existing factor, risk and uncertainty, which always can jeopardize all projects in case of miscalculation; the events and tasks can never be accurately anticipated. We all have seen a lot of examples around us; the projects that exceeded way too much above their budgets, or finished too late, or being abandoned before completion. Such failures are far too common to be ignored and they are not limited to some particular industries. The goal of the project management essentials training course is to help you anticipate as many of the problems and dangers as possible, prepare yourself and your team for them, and organize and control activities so that projects are completed successfully in spite of all the risks.
Similar to other fields of management, there are international standards for project management also in place. Some of the major standers include ISO 21500, ISO 31000, ISO/IEC/IEEE 16326, ISO 9000, ISO 10006, GAPPS, HERMERS method, PRINCE2, and etc. Depending on the nature of the project you will manage, our instructors at TONEX can guide you and help you find the standard suitable for you business.
