Project Management During & After Covid$2350
About this course
There is no doubt that 2020/21 have been challenging years. The pandemic has made every human on earth think differently as to how they will live and behave. Whole business and community cultures have changed right across the world. This Project Management training course focuses on re-emphasizing the importance of traditional processes, tools and techniques but also adapts them for the modern post pandemic world – with or without vaccines! Lessons learned should be understood and a check of our existing plans, with realism, should take place.
Every organisation may be cross examining its own Vision, Mission and Strategy. Some projects therefore may be cancelled, ‘put on the shelf,’ or given the go ahead to proceed based on early, high level conceptual estimates. Estimates will have a level of uncertainty and require more detailed for the cash flow projections and schedule forecasts. In these tough times, workers maybe on site using distancing rules or working from home. Whichever, attention will be on how the project work is progressing, and if the team are working safely and delivering within projections.
