The module introduces the learner to the Project Management skills that are needed and used regularly in every workplace.  Both large and small-scale projects need good planning to ensure that they are completed efficiently, on time and within budget.  Strategic project management is critical for all organisations.  The aim of this module is to give an understanding of the methods and techniques to manage projects of any type, from their very earliest stages right through to their completion.  

In addition, the learner will develop several skills such as planning, problem solving and team building, in addition to leadership and communication skills.  The learner will be introduced to the methods and techniques used to take an initial concept from project definition and execution to the rolling out of the end result.  These methods and techniques can apply to almost anything—In fact, they can be applied to virtually every endeavour to initiate change.
