Introduction to Digital Project Management (DPM Stage 1)

intro to dpm


Digital project management (DPM) is challenging. This course breaks down each of its stages, from project planning and scoping through to delivery to your end-user. It will consider how can you adapt your existing skills to work successfully as part of a team delivering digital projects and will equip you with the terminology and confidence you need to put these skills into practice. It will show you how to become an efficient and effective team player, with advice on how to manage suppliers and staff, budgets and schedules.

Each of the two sessions of this course will combine knowledge acquisition with how to implement this knowledge in real-life practice to achieve results. There will be opportunities for discussion, examples of best practice, real-life case studies and sample documentation provided.
