With a strong background in Project Management (PM), Alasdair is ideally-suited to provide training in the key aspects of this important skill. Alasdair’s experience has been gained in a number of different organisations who have had different applications of the basic methodologies of PM, and the training approach can be tailored to suit your organisation and help it to fit the culture. PM is a discipline that benefits all scales of projects, whether it be moving some desks in the office to a major project worth millions of pounds. It is vital to use PM appropriately to give the necessary control and review, without unnecessary bureaucracy getting in the way of the effort needed to make the change happen. Alasdair has been involved in all stages of projects involving the design, build and delivery of capital equipment and process and organisational change, so has a wide range of experience on which to draw.
“Informal and easy approach. Alasdair seems passionate about project management.”
“Full participation was encouraged. The trainer was very knowledgable on the subject.”
Further sessions can be provided to follow up on this introduction either as a whole-group session, or as mentored sessions with individuals who would benefit from support to manage real projects.
