Plan and Start Projects


If projects are not set up professionally right from the start, difficulties are likely to arise during the entire project. To avoid this, an adequate planning phase and start process are required. These include, among other things, the internal project assignment as well as the definition of project boundaries, objectives and the project organization. Furthermore, structuring and planning of the entire project is necessary in order to create a good foundation for later controlling. 

That's exactly what the training "plan and start projects" is about. The content will help you to understand and apply the project management basics. The theoretical inputs are supplemented by practical case studies and examples from centerline/ consultants.
