Leading Major Projects

Managing projects effectively and developing your leadership skills

Project managers do not simply play an organizational role. They are in charge of supplying different actors with the necessary means to create value for the company and leading project teams whilst coping with major internal, external, and often contradictory, pressures. If you are a project manager and wish to develop, and take on, larger projects then this training program is ideal for you. To achieve your performance goals, you will be able to :

Take a step back

Rethink the techniques, tools and strategies you use




To succeed, planning alone is insufficient. One must improvise as well.

– Isaac Asimov



The program will enable you to:

Acquire the techniques, tools and qualities required for directing and managing key projects

Understand the context in which key projects begin and develop - vision, stakes, performance and links between the different actors involved in the project

Act as a leader, manage your team and communicate successfully with all the internal and external stakeholders

Anticipate and lead change and risks. Adopt the principle of continual improvement
