Projects are gaining more and more importance in organisations. The value of capital projects undertaken worldwide will double in the period between 2015 and 2025 and organisations are increasingly recognising that it is beneficial for their business to manage change through projects. As a consequence project managers need to be highly skilled and knowledgeable in order to address the challenges in their projects. The Introductory PM Seminar by Muscat University in cooperation with Liverpool Business School provides an opportunity to learn best-practice and research-informed tools and skills for effective project management. You will explore various components of the project management landscape, including project life cycle management, project management processes and project frameworks and methodologies.
This includes finding effective solutions for your own real challenges by interacting with leading experts and your peers. And you will learn how to use effective management techniques to transform complex ideas into a structured and successful plan, and how to manage multi-disciplinary teams through a focus on behavioural aspects.
You can put the concepts you learn during the Introductory PM Seminar into action at work immediately. Upon successful completion of this seminar you will receive a certificate from Muscat University and Liverpool Business School
