ABOUT THE WORKSHOP
One of the greatest obstacles for organisations in Singapore is to complete a project on time and with a tight budget. Even well-organised and clearly defined projects can grow too complex, spinning out of control, losing their way and morphing into something they were never intended to be.
Some examples of projects that participants may have come across include:
- Undertaking research or audit.
- Development of new services or decommissioning of old services.
- Outsourcing of key processes involved in delivering training, finance and human resource management.
- Changing protocols used in the provision of service to users.
A clear challenge with organisations is that project expectations and requirements might, from time to time, be fluid and change as a result of government or regulatory requirements, evidence from research or best practice, or following user or professional recommendations. These organisations are often required to improve performance with fewer resources. As a result, they are constantly being asked to be more productive and efficient and consequently under pressure to innovate.
Fortunately, there are things we can do to maintain the focus on the ultimate goals. This workshop will get participants up to speed on the latest, most effective project-management techniques and strategies available. In addition, participants will learn dozens of practical project-management how-to’s, tools and tips that will help their organisations save time, money and effort along the way.
WHAT YOU WILL LEARN
By the end of the workshop, participants will be able to:
- Understand the need for project management and project management methods.
- Apply the techniques and tools to manage each stage of the project life cycle.
- Work within organisational and cost constraints, set goals tied directly to stakeholder needs.
Utilise project management tools to get the work done on time and within budget, particularly in the areas of social work and social care.
