The ABCs of Project Management

Date: Continued application | Time:13:30-17:00 | Place: Online Learning | Membership fees: 295 EUR + VAT

Intended for:

For project managers and managers for beginners, those involved in projects, without a theoretical basis of knowledge.



Project management is nothing new these days. There is probably no industry or field where the project approach is foreign. Although the word Project seems clear to everyone, yet again and again mistakes are made in seemingly simple situations.

Just a few examples of mistakes: Goals are not set accurately in projects, project stages are not defined and respected, accurate communication is not maintained within the team and with external partners. And getting into these situations repeatedly, there is a reason to ask the question - do we really know these seemingly simple things?


How to manage projects and find appropriate management tools for each situation?

The solution to this challenge requires answering more nuanced questions. How to manage a project in different organizational cultures? How to define a project goal? How to understand the scope of the project? How to create a project plan and successfully control it? What is the difference between a classic waterfall or an iterative agile approach? How to manage project risks? How to identify the parties involved in the project, the roles and responsibilities of the project? How to implement changes in the project? What to do at the end of the project?

We will look for answers to these questions in the "ABC of Project Management" seminar by Karlina Anna Rosenfeld.
