Three-Day Successful Project Management Course is approved by Technical & Vocational Training Corporation (TVTC)-KSA Approval Number 159268914

Organizations usually are engaged in projects of different nature across various industries such as construction, oil & gas exploration, refining, manufacturing, healthcare, real estate development, mergers & acquisitions, new product launch, and strategic initiatives. Project directors and managers are faced with immense challenges such as budget constraints, limited resources, tough delivery schedules, scope management, inefficient teams, and meeting ever-changing demands of key stakeholders. Overcoming these key challenges requires not only project management expertise but also leadership skills.

Successful project management is more than just planning, scoping, scheduling, and execution. It is about securing stakeholders’ interests, avoiding pitfalls, navigating through complex situations, driving the project team towards a shared vision and goal, managing conflicts and delivering projects within stipulated time, specifications, and budget.

This three-day program has been designed to enhance your project management, leadership, team building, conflict management, negotiation, stakeholder management, and communication skills that are critical for successful project management. It takes a management perspective and focuses on practical aspects of project management. This program further shows participants how to leverage global project management best practices, tools, and techniques to deliver projects successfully in a diverse and multi-culture environment.
