The primary goal of a business project is the delivery of business value or benefit. Although relevant, traditional project management needs to be broadened to address the unique requirements of business projects. This intensive 3-day course addresses the concepts and issues of business focused project management and assists delegates in making the shift from a strong but narrow technical project management practice to a broader, more business-oriented approach.
The course focuses on the fundamentals of Project Management from a business and people perspective as
well as embracing the standards and best practices as contained in the PMI® PMBOK™ Guide and other international standards. It is underpinned by the unique BFPM™ model and ODPM™ methodology and is based on the text "The Practice of Project Management: a business-focused approach" authored by Dennis Comninos and Enzo Frigenti.
The course is presented as a balanced mixture of theory, discussion, and practical sessions. It is conducted in a lively and interactive manner and participants are encouraged to raise issues and to challenge current project management thinking. A computer-based simulation is conducted which highlights the role of a PM during the Execution Phase and is used to reinforce the basic PM principles and concepts.
