Programme Introduction:

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 program is designed to impart necessary skills in managing small and large projects in different domains like construction, infrastructure, power plants, irrigation, industry, etc.
