Managing Smaller Projects

This course presents a simple and practical approach for managing projects: one that strips away bureaucracy yet retains vital control. Using the SPM approach enables delegates to maintain control over many small projects, determining facts about progress, risks and achievements.

They will gain assurance that the right products are being produced, to time and cost targets, and will become aware of problems at an early stage.
