Managing a Project Team

This one-day training course explores some of the issues associated with managing or leading a group of people who have come together to deliver a project.

The course explores the challenges presented in taking responsibility for the work of a group of people who you do not line manage and who may have specialisms or interests very different to your own.

This workshop is currently only available online, delivered as an interactive webinar via Zoom. See below for the full outline and upcoming dates.

Course overview

Currently all of our classroom sessions have been suspended until we receive further government guidance. We have converted this classroom workshop into an interactive webinar delivered via Zoom.

We have had to adjust the course content slightly so it can be delivered online — please see below for the updated outline.

 

This full day remote course will be delivered via a combination of face-to-face live-online Zoom sessions and self-guided study. The self-guided elements will focus on explaining the concepts and tools and allow for self-reflection. The Zoom sessions will focus on group interaction, discussion, exercises, and opportunities to practice the skills.

Please do not plan any other remote meetings on this day. It can be intense being online and we’d love you to be fresh throughout the learning.

What you will learn

At the end of the course, learners should:

  • Have considered how to bring together the ‘right’ team
  • Have explored how to ‘create the vision’ and ‘gain buy in’
  • Understand how to delegate/allocate tasks effectively
  • Be able to implement a range of approaches to monitoring team performance
  • Have considered how to keep a team motivated
  • Have explored how to work with team dynamics and deal with any difficulties
  • Have considered how to properly ‘disband’ the team at the end of the project

Themes Covered

  • Identifying who you need on the team and bringing them on board
  • Agreeing direction and objectives
  • Sharing the work and keeping the team motivated
  • Managing team members’ performance
  • Dealing with clashes and conflicts through an understanding of team dynamics
  • What to do at the end of the project to bring the team to closure

It was a good day and I felt that considering the constraints of doing it online it went well - I think I would always prefer a in person course but not possible at this time.

Coronavirus Update

Due to current government guidelines we have temporarily closed our training centre in London. All of our staff are now working remotely, and all classroom training has been postponed until further notice.

We have developed a fantastic range of interactive webinars delivered by our experienced facilitators, Live Online Learning. You can see details of our IT Skills live online learning sessions here and our Personal Development sessions here – or we can adapt any of our classroom training into webinar format for you.

For the latest government guidance, please visit the gov.uk website.

We will continue to monitor the situation and will advise all clients if the situation changes.
