Delegation Skills


Research suggests many projects fail to hit their objectives. This is often caused by a lack of planning, scope creep, moving goalposts, changing priorities, budget cuts or diverted resource. But projects that benefit from skilful project management can deliver outstanding results.

This interactive project management workshop focuses on the essentials for success, with particular emphasis on change management and some of the softer skills that can often be overlooked.

We outline a project management framework that set out clearly how to plan, implement and close projects effectively so that they become a catalyst for positive change.
