Project Management for HR Practitioners
10th May 2017 15Hatfields, Chadwick Court, London, SE1 8DJ
Skilled Project Management is becoming more and more important for every HR professional. This session is designed for those who wish to learn more about Project Management as an essential business tool for HR.
Business expects HR to lead all their projects in a way that is systematic and coordinated with other business developments. Each HR project therefore needs not only a good business case, but must also be managed through a business-like process. All projects are affected, whether they be large-scale change management programmes or more focused developments.
The event is likely to be a key to the development of your team, or indeed anyone who would like to extend their range of expertise. It will focus on a real world approach to setting up and running business oriented projects. It will be suitable for practitioners who have or are likely to have project management responsibilities. They may wish to enhance their current project skills, or be running their first project. It will also inform those who take part in larger scale projects for which they take the specialist HR partner responsibility.
Participants will work through in stages from the start-up, how to plan and implement the project, the project environment and issues which may arise, through to the implications and effect of terminating the project.
The course is based on proven project management methodologies, including
the PRINCE2 methodology. It provides practical tools and techniques that
participants will be able to put into practice straight away, along with clear and
comprehensive advice on meeting project objectives.
The course will contain a number of practical project management activities,
along with input sessions containing clear and practical information. Every
effort will be made to make the input sessions enjoyable, as well as
informative and useful.

"I thoroughly enjoyed the course today and our trainer “Jon” was superb. In fact I would say it was probably one of the best information sharing and learning events I have attended for a long time and would recommend this to others. Lots to take in (actually that’s an understatement!) but all useable and practical information from a well rehearsed knowledgeable trainer" Irene Mardon, University Hospital Southampton NHS Foundation Trust
