Course Preliminary Information:

Project Management has gained much recognition in recent times, where it has become a separate professional skill to achieve certain goals/objectives. Earlier it used to be a part of a business or engineer work only; however, now-a-days it has become a norm to finish any task which has set goals to achieve in a specified time.

 

Managing a project needs to establish the need of a project, goals/objectives to achieve, course of action (including potential corrective/alternative actions), ways to manage stakeholders, systematic approach to execute to achieve project objectives, a mode to present it formally to stakeholders to ensure that it meets the expectations of stakeholders, closure of the project after dissemination of information and recording of lessons learned.   

 

TRA has designed this course to enhance the knowledge of project management of those who are responsible for managing projects (simple or complex) from conception to completion.

This course discusses almost all the steps involved in project management and leads the trainee how to start and complete the project professionally and efficiently.
