People management skills are often overlooked in favour of technical skills by project managers. However, effective people management, team management, influencing and communication skills, enable project managers to gain commitment from the project team and achieve the performance needed to successfully deliver against objectives.
This 2 day course will help delegates to develop their people management skills, both for people working full time on the project and people who have other responsibilities and demands on their time.
