Advanced Project Management

Advanced Project Management (PM201) provides the next step in project management practices required for more significant projects with higher degrees of challenge. Such major projects will usually invoke full application of the requirements of an organisation’s capital investment and project procedures. While there are usually less of these projects their impact on the business requires that the project manager exercise leadership, business and personal skills in addition to advanced project techniques.

PM201 is specifically tailored to the larger budget (> $50M), higher risk and more complex projects in your sustaining capital budget - projects in which the project manager and key team members will be full time on the project supplemented by a variety of specialists and part time contributors. PM201 delivered by HAIN Consulting captures the specific requirements of an organisation’s project procedures by using real project situations and case study exercises taken from the client’s recent experience.

Recent client projects and documentation provide the perfect canvas for illustrating good practices and areas for improvement. Discussion arising from these complex situations challenges a project manager’s skills and problem solving ability, highlights their knowledge deficiencies and pin points their areas for development. Each participant completes a Personal Learning Journal to individually record this information to guide their on the job skill development.
