Who is it for?

This programme is ideal for people about to begin their first project or those who have been running projects for a while but not had any formal training.

The likelihood is that you are running multiple projects or have been given a longer-term initiative to deliver alongside your day job.  In most instances this will mean coordinating the activity of people outside your team – some more senior than you – which places a premium on your influencing skills.

It will give you the practical skills to ensure that any resources (people, time, money) you are given will be put to good use in achieving a worthwhile objective
