Time Management for Managing Projects and Complex Tasks

group training booking button

Managing complex tasks in Singapore, like projects, requires a range of time management skills.  Most important is the estimation process for costs and timings.  Most project estimations are difficult to forecast, hence the large number of projects that are delivered over-time and over-budget.

The new PD Training Signature series course, Time Management for Managing Projects and Complex Tasks, incorporates best practices from a range of professional frameworks like Agile SCRUM, to create a real-world time management training course for the real-world project manager. 

We introduce course participants to a range of modern tools including mobile apps and online counters and timers, which allow you to better leverage your time while at work.  Mobile devices can now be important tools when improved productivity is the primary goal.

Learn essential skills like how your personality type can actually impact your personal time management, multiple estimation techniques, delegation of tasks, meeting management, managing a crises situation and much more!
