The 6th Project Management Seminar-Workshop 2018


Projects are part of everyone’s life. Whether applied in work, business, or in certain facets of life, we do projects. Projects are simple or complex. Some projects are inexpensive while others are costly. There are projects that can be done alone while most projects are done with team members. Projects can be frustrating and yet fun to implement.

How do we manage projects successfully based on requirements of business?

The role of Project Manager is critical, and as such, he/she should learn core concepts and best practices in project management. It is imperative that he/she understands the life cycle of project management and develop skill sets in project planning and implementation.

This 2-day program is designed to help participants augment their existing understanding of project management by learning a number of powerful tools and techniques that can be used in managing projects.

The program will discuss the concepts and principles behind each technique, and will allow participants to apply their understanding of the tools through a series of workshops.
