Great project management means much more than delivering a project. There is the need to deliver on time, within budget, and scope. It unites clients and teams, creates a vision for a successful project, and gets everyone on the same page of what is needed to stay on track for success.


Who is this for?

Staff who are planning future projects and require project management skills that you can use in your work. Technical complexities are avoided in favour of step-by-step techniques to help you achieve successful development, implementation and completion of all types of projects.

Why should I take part?

The Cambridge Dictionary defines Project Management as ‘the activity of organising and controlling a project’.

Project Management plays a key role in achieving a business goal successfully. It is the process which involves:

  • planning
  • securing
  • executing
  • controlling
  • managing tasks and resources.

  • Can I request a course or development day be held at my organisation?

    The TUCO Academy has worked hard to offer all training at a subsidised price, agreeing reduced corporate contract rates with hotels etc. - yet still understands the benefits of in-house training. To that end, working alongside the professional trainers, TUCO Academy can arrange for events to be held at your own institution, for no extra cost.
