Introduction to Microsoft Teams and Planner
Have you been using Microsoft Teams for a while? Have you tapped into the range of apps that are available to you in order to make collaboration easier? Microsoft Planner is just one of the apps that can be integrated into Microsoft Teams to help with task management. This is much more advantageous than using the Planner app on its own.

Introduction to Project Management
Suddenly everything is a project.
And yet very few people are taught the basic project management skills required to stand a chance of success.
This course is Happy’s response to the problem. This event (held as either a one day or a two day) is designed for new project managers or people with projects to manage but no clear planning process. By the end of the workshop, delegates will have a simple-to-use toolkit — and may be even the start of a project plan!
Our next one-day workshop is on 1st February.

You will learn through 12 x 2 hour online sessions, held fortnightly. You will also have self-guided assignments to complete through our Happy Leadership Portal on Fuse, with online resources available to access throughout the programme and beyond.
