About this Course

This course presents a simple and practical approach for managing projects: one that strips away bureaucracy yet retains vital control. Using the SPM approach enables delegates to maintain control over many small projects, determining facts about progress, risks and achievements. They will gain assurance that the right products are being produced, to time and cost targets, and will become aware of problems at an early stage.

Target Audience

This course is suitable for those with a basic understanding of project management and the project planning process.

The 'Small Project Management' (SPM) philosophy is a standard method for managing all small projects to obtain a consistent approach while keeping paperwork to a minimum.
