GIMI Study Programme: Project Management
Start Date: Jul 09, 2013
End Date: Jul 22, 2013
Venue: Galilee International Management Institute (GIMI)
Description: Introduction
The Galilee International Management Institute Project Management (PM) Programme has been designed for people in management positions in all sectors; social, corporate, private, public and political. The programme aims to furnish the participants with the best managerial, decision-making tools and techniques for planning, organising and managing resources to bring about the successful completion of specific project goals and objectives.

Programme Description
The Project Management Programme is delivered via workshops directed by leading experts in PM, computerised sessions (by MS Project), case studies, study tours and intensive discussions with classmates.
A Project is a carefully defined set of activities using resources (money, people, materials, energy, space, provisions, communication, motivation, etc.) to achieve certain goals and objectives. 

The Project is also a finite endeavor (having specific start and completion dates) undertaken to create a unique product or service which brings about beneficial change or added value. The finite characteristic of a project stands in sharp contrast to processes or operations, which are permanent or semi-permanent functional work to repetitively produce the same product or service. In practice, the management of these two systems is often found to be quite different and as such requires the development of distinct technical skills and the adoption of a separate management philosophy, which is the subject of this programme.

Project management includes developing a project plan, which combines defining project goals and objectives, specifying tasks or how goals will be accomplished, what resources are necessary and designing budgets and timelines for completion. It also includes implementing the project plan, along with careful controls to ensure the plan is being managed according to plan.

Objective and Outcome
The primary challenge of PM is to achieve all of the project goals and objectives while honouring the project components such as the scope of the project, time factors budget and cash flow. Typical constraints are scope, time and budget. The secondary and more ambitious challenge is to optimise the allocation and integration of inputs necessary to meet pre-defined objectives.

The participants will be expected to:
Understand the related PM approach and become familiar with the PM technique, applications and implementation 
Learn the “know-how” capacity and be able to run a business project initiative independently
Be able to enhance their capacity building skills and expertise in their decision-making policy

Participants
The Programme is designed for Galilee International Management Institute's graduates and other managers that wish to include the PM principles in their occupations.

Curriculum
The structure of the curriculum covers most of the components of PM topics. Participants will become familiar with the concept, the technique and applications thereof, in various fields of management.
As a part of the programme and in order to exercise practically the PM arena, participants will be expected to prepare a project proposal of their own, preferably taken from their work/organisation environment.
The presentation of the Project Proposal by the participants is considered as a part of the capacity building training exercise.

  •  Project Management – Strategic Scope and Justification
  •  Project Planning, Timing, Budgeting
  •  Project Progress, Tracking, Monitoring & Evaluation
