End Time: 17:00
Type: Workshop
Rank: Introductory
Venue: TBC - Melbourne

Who Should Attend: 
This one day workshop is intended for professionals working in the therapeutic goods industry who need an awareness of the basic project management processes. This workshop is intended for those that need an insight into the project manager role and how to effectively work with project managers.

Course Overview: 
An Introduction to Project Management for the Therapeutics Industry.
With or without the title of Project Manager, most people today are involved in project work. For the majority of us using formalised project management is like hiring an accounting firm to balance our cheque book accounts, and yet, when used intelligently project management principles and techniques can be invaluable for the 'non-project' management professional.

Course Highlights: 
The workshop will provide attendees with an overview of:
•Reasons for project success
•What is a project and project management
•The project life cycle
•Planning a project Managing and controlling a project
•Closing a project

Although this one day workshop covers similar content as the three day Project Management Fundamentals workshop, it does this at a high level using a non-industry specific example.

Entry Criteria: 
There is no entry criteria for this workshop. If you have any questions on your suitability for this course, do not hesitate to call the ARCS Business Office.
