31 Jan 2019

How do you plan to develop your project management skills in 2019?

Whether it’s a small event, large programme or a huge building relocation, handling a project requires specific skills and knowledge.

Online learning from the University

The Learning and Development Toolkit (found by clicking the lightbulb in Quick Links on StaffNet) provides a whole host of podcasts, videos, resources and articles on bettering your project management skills – all in short accessible formats. Beginners could start by reading the Introduction to Project Management or browsing the project management tutorials.

Online learning from LinkedIn

We provide access to Lynda, the online learning platform from LinkedIn. Lynda has a wealth of content on project management including Project Management Foundations and how to Become an Agile Project Manager. Email StaffLD@manchester.ac.uk if you do not have access to Lynda.

Changing something at the University 

Does your project involve changing something at the University? Change Management Essentials (found by clicking the lightbulb in Quick Links on StaffNet) is an essential resource. It includes information and guidance on leading, delivering or experiencing change, including development programmes and further learning.
