Project Management Primer
By FDA Union webinars
We all appreciate that change is a given these days. So the real challenge is to change well, and that means achieving the right things and doing it in the right way. Project Management is the professional discipline and structure for that. That said, the underlying ideas and principles of project management are quite straightforward, and quite long standing: "First, have a definite, clear practical ideal; a goal, an objective. Second, have the necessary means to achieve your ends; wisdom, money, materials, and methods. Third, adjust all your means to that end." (Aristotle 322BC).
So the disciple of Project Management is about the rigour of focussing on the right outcomes (effectiveness) and achieving that in the best way (efficiency), using a package of proven and evolving tools and processes.
This webinar provides an overview and introduction to Project Management. It covers: the overall body of knowledge and specific frameworks for example from “PRINCE2” through to “Agile”; the key elements of successful project management and how they are applied and adapted in practice; and a series of tips or traps to help increase the success of projects.
