Companies of all shapes and sizes are increasingly reliant on teams focused on specific projects to manage initiatives and organisational change. At the same time, most professional workers are managing their own projects as part of ‘business as usual’, in which they are the project manager and the project team. Without project management skills, this can be daunting and insufficiently productive.
However, when people have learnt the fundamentals of project management, they will feel much better equipped to manage projects confidently, be it as part of a project team or managing their own projects. These fundamentals are not just about managing timings and the various stages in a project but importantly, also the people side of project management, such as communicating, influencing, leading change and managing conflict.
After our Project Management training course, participants will have a clear understanding of how to manage their next project.

Read on to learn even more about what goes into being an effective and successful project manager, and how ICML can help you build up all the skills you need.
When you are working on a project — whether you are the one leading or participating in a team or you are the team — there are a number of skills that will allow you to excel. These include:
Many of these are effectively “people skills,” both for keeping yourself going strong and ensuring everyone else on the team is staying the course.
The good news is that to excel at project management in Australia, you don’t need any set qualifications. You will just need to be able to use the above skills to work within or oversee a project team, effectively deploying all the knowledge you’ve acquired over the course of your career.
Those skills are applicable in a broad range of industries and for businesses of all sizes. Whether you are working on your employer’s first-ever project team or this is the kind of thing that happens on a weekly basis, these skills will be vital.
When you are managing a project from the top down, you are overseeing a lot of moving parts. Whether it’s a human resources project, or you are developing a new process, product or service, the same leadership and management tools will always be necessary to manage the project for success.
Want to improve some of those skills? We have a few suggestions for how to do so.
There is no set point at which you have fully learned what it takes to master business project management. As with many other things in business, the things that work today might not work tomorrow.
You will therefore have to constantly hone your skills so that you can always be an agile project manager.
You can be a more effective project manager or participant at any level of your career. Whether you’re just getting your feet wet in an entry-level job or you’ve been a C-suite executive for years, you can manage projects effectively.
The good news is that these skills will typically benefit you no matter what your career path looks like, and can help you accelerate your climb up the corporate ladder.
At ICML, we offer some fantastic project management training courses that can help you and your colleagues hone your skills and knowledge, both in general and for very specific skills necessary to lead a project from inception to completion. These lessons should be part of your broader professional development.
Each one is highly customisable, so you or your colleagues get exactly the guidance you need.
Whether it’s for a handful of professionals within your organisation or an entire team, delivering a tailored in-house Project Management training program is both economical and effective.

Gill was fabulous and very engaging, definitely recommend staff to undertake this course.
This course has made me reassess my management skills and style and provide a structure to improve and develop my skills. Justine was very professional, excellent communicator and structured the content in a meaningful and logistic format. Good balance of theory and practice.
Craig was very engaging and able to deliver the message clearly. Lots of self realisations I had not thought of – the course highlighted a lot of things for me. I found the informal discussions were very valuable, particularly when I could open up about some experiences and get advice.
Superb, entertaining and informative. Would recommend everyone at Versent to go through this training. Craig was very engaging and thought provoking. Some good models and strategies to try out in the real world.
David is a very good trainer. Program was very informative and extremely interesting. David has an extreme amount of knowledge – will look into further courses with him. Thank you.
David was engaging and had us involved, did not think for us, however made us think for ourselves. It is completely worth the money! Made us feel comfortable and shared so much knowledge.
Robin was knowledgeable, experienced and engaging. Great overview and helpful tools that I will be able to implement. The course was practical and made me think differently.
Thanks Robin for a very informative and practical day. I will definitely implement some of the learnings in my current project. Lots of great, practical tools and information.
This was a well organised and informative course that has practical applications. Robin had good examples and real life experience.
Robin was really good at explaining all the terminology clearly and gave examples that helped me to understand better. This has helped me learn all the basics and the tools how to best tackle a project from start to finish.
As a project manager myself, the content was familiar but was still a good reminder of important tools and skills and provided good interaction with colleagues on the topic. John was an excellent facilitator – highly engaging and able to deliver the material in an easy format.
Anita has a wealth of expert knowledge and an incredible ability to map every example thrown at her, back to best practice project management. Thank you.

Easy to understand and makes the whole idea of project management less daunting. The workshop provides a very easy to follow and implement process. Information was great detail but not overwhelming.
Anita was very professional and knowledgeable. Really appreciate such an authentic training style – very enjoyable. The workshop was extremely thorough and provided relevant information. Thoroughly recommend for anyone undertaking project work of any type. Very valuable and applicable information.
Everything was explained in detail and I liked the way Anita encouraged group discussion. I found the session very informative and some of the project management techniques very valuable. Fantastic session to learn the fundamentals of project management.
I enjoyed Craig’s delivery and demeanour. He customised the presentation/training to our unique situation. Great session. I enjoyed the smaller group.
Training was beneficial and I was happy with Craig’s delivery. I have had a lot of management training before and facilitated similar topics myself but it was amazing to be able to pick up some further tips.
Craig is a fantastic facilitator. He is very knowledgeable, a great presenter/speaker, he is warm and very positive. Clearly a subject matter expert. Great experience, and great to meet him. Thanks Craig!

Gained understanding and tools to manage projects as well as increase productivity in general. It was easy to follow and understand content. The day was interactive and the material very interesting.
The course gave me a good understanding of how to manage a project from start to finish. I have not taken part in project management but this course gave me the confidence to want to start managing projects. Robin was an excellent facilitator – dynamic + knowledgeable.
Great hands on knowledge which Robin used as examples for explanations. His knowledge came from experience, not a text book. It was great that the program was not set in concrete and could be structured around the participant’s needs.
Robin is highly approachable and engaging in his presentation style and he presented his information clearly. This was a great opportunity to not only reinforce my existing knowledge but to enhance my skill set to be better equipped to tackle the project management required in my role.
A great overview of the project management environment coupled with lots of useful tools for projects big and small. I’ll definitely be implementing these in my work day.
Very thorough workshop. Robin was very good and knows his stuff. Robin really knew what he was talking about and was very engaging and confident in delivering the content of the course.
The course was very thorough and covered exactly what I requested through the pre-course survey. I liked that there was theory, examples, exercises, text etc but also focussed on following initiative and not on complicating matters.
I’m excited to go back to the workforce and start using some of the tools that I’ve been give. The course was a good refresher and very practical. It’s reinspired my interest in project management. Robin provided good examples/scenarios throughout the day and lots of great little tips. I will be sending staff through this course before they embark on any major project.
Loved the course Project Management Essentials. Would surely recommend it to anyone who needs it. Robin has been excellent and helped clear the doubts that arose during the course. The course gives a lot of insights into Project Management. I learnt a lot of things I can improve on.
Robin is a great facilitator, rich in experience. Very good first step into PM world for me. Most of the topics are known already, but I got some useful best practices and acknowledgement. Very useful new findings! Especially the electives after 4pm.
Great tips to help with current job. Tailored well to needs of the group. Feel more aware about how projects run start to finish.
Class delivered in an interactive and engaging way. Based on concrete examples which makes it easy to understand and retain.
Robin provided a good overview, practical tips and hints. I feel that my confidence in managing a project has increased and the aura around “project management” has been demystified.
I think the best aspect of this course was that we were able to apply the techniques to projects we were all working on. It's a lot easier to understand and put things into practice when it can be used in a practical sense. Gill was really keen to help us all and anything that we need moving forward.
The course was delivered extremely well and the supporting materials were great takeaways. I really enjoyed this course and would recommend it to anyone.
The facilitator was very flexible to our needs as a group. The content covered was specific to our needs and this ensured engagement throughout. The different models such as RACI will definitely assist moving forward. I also enjoyed applying current situations and projects to the models that were being discussed as this provided further clarity. Great course I as can apply to my role immediately.
