Would you like to learn about the Goal Directed based Project Management approach and have a project of your choice launched at the same time?

This highly interactive and practical 2-day project launch (sometimes called mobilisation) workshop uses the concepts of Goal Directed Project Management (GDPM) to focus on the key principles that increase the chances of project success without the need for extensive lecturing or examinations. Our experience has shown us that embedding learning is about doing rather than being told - using real life projects and teams enables rapid application and reinforcement of the GDPM principles.

This project launch workshop is highly interactive, with practical use of the tools, techniques and Fast Forward templates on a simulated project in a safe environment on Day 1. On Day 2 this workshop will effectively set up and launch a live project of your choice through the development of a first draft project scope, end goal, objectives and plan.Team memberswill receive pre and post workshop virtual support (email / telephone) for their project.

Using practical project examples the teams will learn to develop and agree a clear project scope, the end Goal, a series of Objectives, development of a Milestone Plan, completion of a Responsibility Matrix, Risk and Stakeholder Management and effective project controls.

A review is held after every main session. Day 1 focuses on practice, Day 2 will focus on real application – the initiation and planning of the project teams live project applying the learning from Day 1 to produce a first draft project scope, goal, objectives and plan for their project and to agree the next steps and actions. 

The GDPM approach is complementary to other project management methodologies such as PRINCE2, APM, Agile and PMI and, unlike many academic courses, provides workshop delegates with practical experience of the light-touch, non-bureaucratic tools and templates which they can take back to the workplace and continue to use on their project.

Primarily aimed at the Project Team – including Programme & Project Manager, the core Project Team members, Project Support Office (PSO) people and other key stakeholders. Because GDPM uses simple language, templates and tools & techniques it is also a practical introduction to project management for people with limited experience of managing projects or to improve the effectiveness of projects being managed by the more experienced project managers and their teams.

Delegates will receive pre and post workshop virtual support (email / telephone) for their project.
As well as the above each member of the project team will receive a personal Certificate of Attendance and will be able to take away their personal workshop workbook on completion of the workshop.

The most effective workshop delegate numbers are between 10-16 team members.
