The Project Management course at IDC Technologies will focus on the critical project related activities such as work breakdown, scheduling, cost control and risk management, and show how these can be performed with software to lighten the project manager's workload.

About

More and more engineering and technical professionals are making career transitions from product design into project management. This, however, requires formal training and a willingness to learn new skills. 

The 'soft' (but equally important) aspects such as team leadership and contract law are also covered in detail. All topics will be supplemented with practical exercises focusing primarily on the areas of electrical/electronic (including instrumentation) and mechanical engineering. If delegates wish to do so, they can choose small projects from their work environment as a basis for the practical exercises.

All the technical know-how in the world will not deliver a project successfully, without proper project management skills. Unfortunately very few engineering professionals have any degree of formal project management training, which results in a great deal of personal stress as well as cost blowouts and other woes.

At this Project Management course at IDC Technologies you will learn:

  • Create computerised PERT and Gantt charts for your projects, add and level resources, and monitor/report on your project effectively
  • Define, analyse and manage the risks associated with your projects
  • Avoid the pitfalls caused by a lack of understanding of the legal issues pertaining to projects
  • Use appropriate software to leverage your time and expertise
