Helping Develop Managers for the “New Norm World”
COVID-19 presents unique challenges for future and existing project managers who are under pressure to acquire ‘new norm knowledge’ to take them forward confidently in this brave new world.
The UKZN Extended Learning (UEL) Division’s Advanced Project Management (APM) Programme is designed to equip participants with knowledge and skills to handle the new demands faced by managers. The programme provides participants with the latest and most relevant project management skills to manage resources and time while working on projects and is aimed at transforming project managers into industry experts able to efficiently execute projects within an organisation.
The APM Programme is broken up into block sessions presented over three months. The first of the 2021 sessions began on 12 May and the general consensus among delegates was that sessions were informative and that the e-learning experience with UEL had been exceptional.
The programme facilitator ensures the programme is engaging, making the lessons more interesting and highly interactive.
In our ever-evolving world the business environment is becoming more digitised and sophisticated while projects are becoming complex and demanding, requiring people to have specialised sets of skills to ensure successful outcomes. The programme provides delegates with that vital knowledge and specialised, transferrable skills.
