This programme examines the various roles and environments entailed in project management, the project life cycle, project initiation, planning, execution, control, and achievement of project objectives.
The DBS Online Diploma in Project Management covers:
Includes defining the project in strategic terms, especially in terms of its business value and seeking authorisation to proceed.

The execution stage includes progressive elaboration of the project’s plan whilst
co-ordinating people, materials and processes to accomplish the planned objectives.
This is the process of ensuring that project objectives are met by monitoring and measuring progress regularly, using earned value to identify variances from plan, responding to risk triggers and taking corrective action as necessary.
The final stage includes the formalised acceptance of the project or phase, the documenting of lessons learned, record archiving as well as contract review and audit.
