Understand the essentials of project management, its methodology and terminology. Be able to apply project management methodology to your own communications planning.
Our own research tells us that project management is a key skill for communicators, but that it is also often a skills gap. So we have put together an introductory course in project management especially for you.
The course will help you understand the nature of projects and how they differ from business as usual. We will talk about planning and critical paths, how to budget and keep the scope of the project under control.
The course is taught online and lasts about six weeks. It follows the syllabus for the Association for Project Management (APM) Fundamentals Qualification, which means you can take a short exam leading to the award of that qualification (an APM exam fee applies).
Meet your course leader, Ann Pilkington.
