Project Manager Skills Training Level 1

This program has been designed for those who are currently project managers, those being groomed as project managers, and those overseeing the project managers.

Project managers need to master a myriad of skill sets to lead with confidence, motivate team members and manage stakeholder engagement to deliver successful projects. They must ensure that projects are kept on track and stay on budget.

In order to be effective and successful and lead the team to a successful outcome, the project manager must exhibit strong leadership skills. Effective project managers must have the skills to inspire, motivate and influence all team member, stakeholders, suppliers and contractors. This requires the skills to build and maintain relationships.

A key element required to achieve this is the ability to communicate. Communication plays a significant part in the success of the project. Miscommunication causes delays and errors. The project manager must be able to communicate well verbally, in writing, in front of a group and in a one-on-one situation. This requires the mastery of communicating.

There are many skills needed behind the scenes to achieve a successful, timely completion of the project such as decision-making strategies, conflict management, brainstorming skills, facilitation and presentation skills. The scope of skills needed to be successful is vast and must be considered as part of the skills needed to be a successful project manager.

All participants will receive a certificate upon completion of this program.
