Project Management for Executives and Managers

Achieve your business goals through successful projects

As managing director or manager you have a great influence on the success or failure of the projects in your company. Learn which factors are decisive for your project success.

Objectives

You will learn effective methods for initiating projects, controlling them from above and leading them to success. This also includes the selection of the project manager and the creation of a success-oriented project culture. You will acquire the ability to have an overview and set priorities even for a large number of projects.

Your Benefit

We work with you in a very practice-oriented manner. The theoretical inputs are set and discussed in relation to your situation in the company. We are not interested in the perfect theory, but in the practical benefits in everyday life. In the seminar not only methodical, but also organizational and human aspects count, because we look specifically at the overall system “project” and its integration in your company. This seminar is based on recognized standards of the Project Management Institute (PMI)®.
