INTRODUCTION TO PLANNING

- is a one day course aimed at any functional department or team who are interested in increasing their task delivery performance. During a packed day they will learn some of the fundamental processes used to define activities, schedule workflow and to monitor and control activity. Participants will complete the day more confident in working to deadlines and producing high quality task completion within the defined budgetary constraints.

IDENTIFYING REQUIREMENTS

Delegates will learn how to take a structured approach to identifying customer requirements and how these can be transferred into suitable delivery options. The benefits of aligning delivery requirements with the “bigger picture” will become clear. Essential communication skills will be examined in order to carry out a process of requirements verification.

DELIVERY OPTIMISATION
Once the requirements have been established it is important to ensure that the delivery is performed in the most efficient way possible. Delegates will learn the fundamentals of network analysis, a technique to ensure that activities and workflow are carried out in the most optimum way.

TIME SCHEDULE DEVELOPMENT
Once optimised it is important that activities are scheduled in a way that can be monitored and controlled. Delegates learn and experience activity scheduling through a realistic case study mini project which has all the characteristics of a typical organisational project.

MONITORING AND CONTROL
Simple monitoring and control techniques are demonstrated and a simulated project is demonstrated using common project planning and delivery software. Demonstrating how software can be used to great effect, regardless of project size.
