PRME009 - Project Management

Programme Overview

Project Management is a 5-day practical course with workshops that enables project teams to achieve world-class project performance and thereby improve profitability of the company. Industry benchmarking has shown a big gap in cost, schedule and operability between best and worst projects with a major impact on the total cost of ownership over the life of the asset.  In today’s competitive business environment this can mean a difference between a profitable company and the one that becomes a takeover target.

This course has been designed to address management of limited and scarce capital resources for consistent world-class project performance.  It begins with a project development and execution process and describes activities, deliverables and organization required to effectively manage these projects.  Emphasis is placed on front-end loading where a multi-functional team defines and freezes the scope of work prior to full funding.

Who should attend

Project managers, project leaders, project coordinators, project administrators, program managers, functional managers, and project team members who are responsible for or involved with initiating, planning, executing, monitoring and controlling, and/or closing of projects with an emphasis on energy facilities.

By the end of this training course, participants will:

  • Manage the selection and initiation of individual projects and of portfolios of projects in the enterprise;
  • Conduct project planning activities that accurately forecast project costs, timelines, and quality. Implement processes for successful resource, communication, and risk and change management;
