A successful project needs good organisation, detailed planning and strong controls. But these skills alone won’t ensure success, as ultimately projects are all about people.

This workshop looks at each stage of the project lifecycle in detail. It provides you with tips and techniques to build team cohesion, overcome people-related obstacles and deliver better outcomes for your stakeholders.


After taking this workshop, you should be better able to:

  • gain and maintain support for your projects
  • help your project team work together more effectively
  • manage communication with your project’s stakeholders.
