Projects carry complex concerns, not always found in traditional management. This one-day module introduces team members to Project Management and its structure. The structured model of Planning, Organizing, Scheduling, Controlling and Managing Change with specific tools and techniques is presented. The overall objectives of this workshop are to inform participants of their roles in projects; and to enable negotiation, communication, and coordination between management, project managers, stakeholders and members of the project team.
