    Given the great success of the previous sessions, the SIB Management and the SIB Training Group are happy to announce a new Project Management 4-day training session.

    • Identifying and managing stakeholders’ relationships
    • Formulating objectives
    • Managing the project life cycle from launch to closing
    • Defining roles and responsibilities
    • Analysing project risks
    • Accompanying change
    • Planning and following-up
    • Managing communications
    • Leading the project team
    • Using the proper templates and tools

    Some feedback from SIB participants on the previous two sessions

    One year after the course, the participants were asked to answer a long-term feedback request: all of them found the course relevant to their work and recommended the course to others. Most participants (90%) currently apply what they learned during the course.
