World-class course in managing Web projects

Written by 
{pp}Britefire’s two-day Web Project Management course, run by an award winning international emarketing project leader, will take place in Fourways, Johannesburg on September 25-26, and in Cape Town on October 6-7.

If you are planning web projects for next year, this non-technical course provides all the skills, tools, and knowledge to make the task easy. The rigorous course teaches: the leadership and communication skills essential for web project success the professional principles and disciplines of Project Management, and state-of-the-art methodologies for managing web development.

The course will be led by Karen Parkin, whose international project leadership record includes enterprise-level web projects for global organisations such as Intel, Marriott International, the BBC and Lockheed Martin, as well as many projects for tactical emarketing campaigns.

Karen Parkin said, “Web projects usually take too long, exceed budgets, or deliver inadequate results. With internet success now such a vital component of company strategy, you can’t afford to keep running web projects by the seat of your pants. You need dynamic leadership, proven methodologies, and state-of-the-art PM disciplines. This course will give you the know-how and the practical skills to succeed every time!”

The course provides participants with an arsenal of best practices and inspiring and enlightening examples - as well as a disk of proven tools and templates to use with their own web projects.

Previous participants in this course from organisations such as Standard Bank, Deloitte, MWEB and GCIS have raved about its scope, depth and practicality.

The two-day Web Project Management course will be run at Fourways near Johannesburg on Thursday and Friday next week (September 25-26). The R5250 fee includes VAT, lunch, full documentation and take-away materials. Discounts are available for as few as two people from the same company. See Britefire’s website for details.
