On the 10th of February 2021, we hosted our ‘Delivering Real Value through Diversity: Key Principles of Project Management’ webinar. The purpose of this webinar is to provide insight into our Competent Project Management and Advanced Project Management programmes. We consistently strive to collaborate with the best academics and leading industry experts to make sure delegates receive an elite educational experience, even if it’s just a programme teaser.

In this session topics such as effective project management, emotional intelligence and the benefits of diversity were covered. To be an effective manger you need to know the people you work with as well as understanding them deeper than surface level interactions. In this day an age, it is easy to overlook the significance of appreciating the diversity of your colleagues beyond face value. The individuals you work with have different stories, backgrounds as well as expertise. It is important that as a manger to have the ability and leadership intuition to use this information for the execution of projects and activities. Acknowledging that management does not have a ‘one size fits all’ strategy is a step in the right direction and collecting the proper information on your human resource is essential for effective leadership. The facilitator for the webinar, Mr. Mondli Mbambo, left the attendees with a final thought,” Project management is by choice, not by chance”. This field of work possesses a series of steps that require you to ask a lot of questions as it is paramount to investigate before implementation. This is why our Project Management programmes provide invaluable content.
