A unique course for project management professionals who are looking to progress in their career and step away from a purely technical role.

Projects and programmes are the vehicles for moving a business or organisation forward and a project manager who is able to do that well is appreciated and rewarded by the client and their own employer.  This course will give delegates the skills required to build such relationships and transform them from a technical expert into a strategic leader. It will provide delegates with the necessary knowledge and skills to become a focused advisor who can successfully develop relationships and think strategically to ensure long term business collaboration which will benefit the client, the business and ultimately their own career. 

Alongside this, it is also necessary to have the leadership tools and techniques in order to lead a team to success. The ability to think clearly, calmly and logically towards the agreed strategic goals, outcomes and objectives is critical. The course will enable the delegate to communicate with and lead teams naturally and with confidence as they learn to master the essential leadership behaviours and processes.

The link between their technical and leadership skills and their career will be highlighted throughout as they understand how to move from project and individuals, to programmes and accounts and then to enterprise and business partners.

This is an applied learning course that links theory and practice by active use of real life case studies and scenarios to allow active learning and engagement and the ability to apply in a working environment.
