Project Management Courses and Training

Project Management is a carefully planned and organised effort to accomplish a specific, and often one-time, objective. In order to be successful, a project manager must have skill, discipline and experience in planning and managing resources. 

As project management is a vital activity in virtually any industry sector or business, project managers with solid skills and, often, qualifications are in high demand. Project Management courses can help you meet this demand by training and/or certifying yourself and your staff to the level needed for success in a role of this type.

The practice of project management

The Project Management Institute refers to a project as a temporary group activity geared towards producing a unique service, product or result. It is temporary in the sense that is has a set beginning and end, in contrast with routinised business activities that recur over time, and unique in that it involves a specific set of operations that aim to achieve a singular goal. Project Management refers to the combination of processes and activities needed to ensure that these projects are completed within pre-defined constraints (or objectives), which usually cover quality, time and cost. Together, these three elements are sometimes referred to as the overall project scope, and are the parameters against which the success of a project is ultimately assessed, though they are often adjusted throughout the lifecycle of a project. As a result, successful project managers need to have a solid set of skills in planning, organising, monitoring and managing resources to achieve specific goals.

There are now a multitude of project management courses being offered across the UK which are delivered in a range of different formats including public, in-house and online training. Project Management courses vary in style and length, with certain programmes providing basic overviews over a one or two day programme, while others deliver a more intensive training experience that often also leads to certification. There are project management courses to meet everyone's needs.

Project Management - five basic phases

Project Management courses are usually built around five key stages of a project which are labelled as the following.

1. Concept & initiation - the initial stage of project management where a project idea is identified or proposed and its benefits and probability of achievement for an organisation are considered.

2. Planning & definition - the project has now been determined as worthwhile and achievable and a plan is now put into writing, identifying what needs to be done. Budgets, schedules and resource lists are also drawn up.

3. Execution - the plans are in place and now, during this stage, resources and tasks are distributed to team members and the plan is put into action.

4. Monitoring & controlling - the work is happening and during this phase, the project manager oversees the work and makes sure that everything is going to plan, resolving any unforeseen issues or changes to schedule.

5. Closing - the project has been delivered as per the plan and now, during this stage, the team evaluates the process, identifies successes and any hiccups. These will usually be put into some form of report to be referred to during future projects.

Careers in project management

Many individuals naturally have the skills needed to work in project management, but they will most likely need to be further developed and supported with industry experience and/or project management courses. International experience is also increasingly valuable to project management professionals with many choosing to study project management courses in international locations.

Aspiring project managers will benefit from a background in areas including:

  • business
  • management
  • engineering
  • accountancy
  • information technology (IT)

The National Careers Service estimates an average project manager's salary to be somewhere in the range of £25,000 to £50,000 per year.
