Digital project management training

Deliver successful projects

Project managers occupy a pivotal role within any delivery team, and the quality of their work can make the difference between a troubled and a successful project. They need wide-ranging skills, tools and experience to navigate an increasingly complex digital landscape.

This is an interactive hands-on course delivered by highly experienced project managers who do this day-in-day-out at Webcredible. You'll gain an understanding of the different tools, methodologies and knowledge that will enable you to manage a project through to successful completion.

During the PM course we'll cover:

  • Introduction to project management
    We'll introduce Agile and Scrum processes and compare these to traditional waterfall methods, going through the pros and cons of each
  • Project planning
    Setting out roles and responsibilities (and using a RACI matrix), and how to create a risk log and communications plan
  • Closing projects
    Conducting retrospectives to capture learnings so mistakes don't get repeated and the team keeps improving
  • Keeping track
    We'll explain about status reporting, communication plans and look at the tools available to help you manage projects
  • People and challenges
    We'll outline the characteristics of successful teams, give tips on managing stakeholders and look at models of team development
  • Putting it all into practice
    We'll do lots of group exercises on actual challenges you might face, project scenarios and actionable take-aways you can apply straightaway
