Project management and cake

Back to all events

14:00 Wednesday 18th November 2020

Online virtual event,

  • The Event
Projects are messy, depend on people – as well as the project steering group and project team, the sponsor, stakeholders, suppliers… – and never quite go to plan. Key to project success though are the project manager and team, but how do you resource the project for a successful outcome?
What are the benefits and challenges of recruiting an experienced external project manager? Would it be better for your projects to skill up a member of staff to take on the role? Can it work to have a part-time project manager reporting to someone else on the project? What support might they need throughout the project and how can the project sponsor help?
In this session we’ll explore some of the different approaches to project management and, through case studies and discussion, learn what might work well for different types of project in your organisation.
