    Then our Project Management Essentials training course will provide the answers you need.

    This intensive two-day training course focuses on how to maximise value for the project and organisation by applying project management essentials. Most time is spent on the 20% of effort that delivers 80% of project value.

    During this course, you will be given a solid introduction to project management tools, techniques and methodologies including international trends and best practice project management techniques.
