“Project Management Primer for voluntary organisations” training

September 4, 2018 @ 1:00 pm – 4:30 pm
VANEL offices
Karl Elliott at VANEL

“Project Management Primer for the voluntary sector” is on Tuesday 4th September, 1pm-4.30pm at VANEL offices in Grimsby.

Places are extremely limited and £40per person (or £60pp for non-member organisations).

The idea of this training is to introduce project management principles, techniques, ideas, tips and good approaches so that participants understand the relevant terminology, tools and approaches. All non-profit organisations need to have a framework which allows them to plan, deliver, monitor and finish off their own sorts of projects effectively.

Attendees will learn that delivering a project well (to specification, budget, timescale etc) is not accidental and should be possible as part of a framework approach to project management.

The session is mainly aimed of course at people ‘running’ projects.

Contents of the session will include fundamental principles, including things like:

a preparation, planning, implementation, monitoring, completing, handover project lifecycle

Waterfall approach to project management (PRINCE2, Gantt charts etc)

Difference to Agile project management (iteration, prototyping)

Defining specifications (Moscow technique)

Planning and costing – both top down and bottom up

Specific techniques such as baselining, critical path identification, resource balancing, involving stakeholders etc

Delivering a plan – troubleshooting, keeping on track etc

Why delivering the plan is only a small part of project management

And so on.
