Project Management Training & Certification

Understand the critical role of the project manager in forming a highly optimized procurement team. Learn about building time and resource plans, project governance, business cases, establishing project controls and effective stakeholder management.

Procurement and supply chain professionals are frequently called upon to manage large-scale and business critical projects. Our introduction to project management training gives your team the tools, insights, and know-how to manage projects successfully and with confidence.

We start by exploring a high-level overview of what project management is and why it’s important, covering the principles, process, and detail of project management as a discipline, and then dive into the following topics.

The business case

Learn the definition of business case document and its essential elements. We show learners how to conduct a cost-benefit analysis and how to use a business case throughout a project lifecycle to the end to show the value created by procurement.

Effective time planning

The “Project Time Planning” course provides a high-level overview of what project management is and why it’s so important. We define the core principles of project management and summarize the project management process.

You’ll learn how to implement change management, how changes impact time, cost-benefit and quality, guidelines on problem escalation, project tolerances and reporting, and how to conduct a project handover.
