Project Management is one of today’s fastest growing professions and has therefore become a very well defined discipline. The Project Management Institute has identified nine topic areas to define the scope of project management knowledge as follows: integration, scope, time, cost, quality, human resources, communications, risk, and procurement. Within each of these topic areas, there is a set of principles, practices, and techniques to help you manage project risks and capture opportunities for success.This training provides a comprehensive structure and methodology for participants from public, private and non-governmental organisations to initiate, plan and execute projects in a more cost-effective manner
