The seminar project management in practice is aimed at project managers and project team members of all hierarchy levels who want to implement their projects even more successfully.
Project management is the temporary supervision of team work to achieve the defined goals of the project in terms of content, scope, quality, time and cost. The goal of project management is to reach the objectives of stakeholders and clients. Due to its temporal delimitation (beginning and end are defined), the management of projects differs from the management of permanent or regularly recurring tasks and processes.
The management of a project is successful if its objectives - corresponding to the project scope - are adequately defined, its procedures are planned, its processes structured and their implementation is carried out according to plan. Realistic project planning, the sensible use of resources (raw materials, budget, employees, time, etc.), efficient methods and sufficient competencies are prerequisites for the success of project management.
Good project management does not come out of the blue: It can and should be permanently learned, expanded and optimized. The more intensively and systematically its processes and methods are practiced and (self-)critically analyzed, the better the stakeholders' goals will be achieved. In terms of constantly changing work requirements, regular training of your own project management skills is an integral part of the success of your projects, the project team, the entire company and, last but not least, the project manager himself.
Our two-day project management in practice training introduces you as a project manager or project member (in-house or online) to the entire "toolbox" of project management and introduces you to the structure, fundamentals, standards and techniques. The training guides you step by step through practically selected projects. The training makes it easier for you to get started and introduces you to all the tasks in project management as well as the tools required to solve them successfully. Individually and in small groups of up to nine people, you will work through the methods in practical exercises and improve your existing skills. In the group, you will discuss approaches to solutions and receive suggestions for optimizing individual steps of project work. Our competent trainers address each seminar participant individually. Your questions such as "How do I start?", "How do I proceed?", "How do I measure the success of my project management?" and "Why should I seek qualification and certification in project management?" will be answered in detail.
Practice and more practice: Far away from all the outdated theory, you will learn how to define, plan, manage and control projects using very concrete example projects and become an expert in project management. You will learn how to distribute roles and tasks, how to define the project in time to prevent it from becoming overloaded, how to coordinate project groups and how to install feedback cycles. During the various project phases, you will regularly communicate project progress to stakeholders, clear up problems and optimize processes. We show you how to motivate project members and moderate teams successfully and productively. Under the attentive yet determined guidance of our instructors, you will develop your own project management style and learn how to master difficult situations during individual phases with confidence. As a consequence, you will face the professional reality and routine in your company with new creativity and strengthened confidence in your enhanced skills as a project manager.
