Complex, technically demanding projects in terms of scope, technologies and regulatory requirements are generally delivered to customers through contractual arrangements involving clients, project management consultants, contractors and sub-contractors. Since these projects are developed in an increasingly challenging environment, a solid understanding of the tendering/contracting process is critical for proper management of projects. The various phases of project management cycle are: project formulation, negotiation, design, documentation, implementation, tracking, monitoring, control and closure.

Many of the projects have failed not due to lack of technical expertise but due to inaccuracies, ambiguities or inconsistencies in the design of project and coordination failure by the team leaders and managers. Understanding the legal underpinnings of projects and managing risks to both technical and contractual delivery is critical to success. Effective project planning, monitoring and control can reduce costs, minimize risks and ensure timely completion of the project. This course is designed to impart necessary skills in managing small and large projects (e.g. turnkey and lump-sum turnkey projects) in different domains like construction, infrastructure, power plants, irrigation, industry, etc.


The objective of the program is to acquaint the participants with practical, in-depth guidance for carrying out vital responsibilities of project management and handling uncertainties that typically arise during the life of the project This course exposes participants with various effective approaches for analyzing project initiation, project planning, project execution and smooth project termination along with behavioral aspects of project management.
