Ghanaian Business Executive To Undergo Project Management Training
HYPERSOFT, a corporate ICT training provider, is to train over 100 Ghanaian business executives and entrepreneurs in project management skills that would enable them execute projects on time, within budget and on specifications.
The organisation, which operates across Africa, would hold a two-week training session in Accra, dubbed: "Boot Camp Project", to provide knowledge in project management and Microsoft Project 2003 for interested applicants. Participants would be equipped with similar processes of project management that were utilized during the rebuilding of the Pentagon after 9/11.
Mr King Tekpa, Chief Executive Officer of HYPERSOFT told the GNA last Saturday in Accra that a renowned project management professional, Mr Steve Caseley from the US, would soon be in Ghana for the programme, which is scheduled to begin from today.
He said such a programme had been long overdue since there had been complaints over the years of projects executions such as road construction that were not delivered on time, within budget and specification.
According to him, the failure of executing jobs on time, within budget and on specification had provoked governments to award projects to foreign firms instead of local contractors in order to meet the expectations of the people.
Mr Tekpa said project management training would teach one how to optimise results through each part of a project's lifecycle and improve its final outcome.
Nine core disciplines of Project Management such as Integration, Scope, Time, Cost, Quality, Human Resource, Communications, Risk and Procurement Management would be explored as well.
