Candidates are then introduced to several popular methods for generating ideas, alongside a series of essential project management tools. Candidates discuss the concepts of minor and major nonconformance, quality audits, the nominal group technique, multi-voting, consensus-building and more.
Module 4: Project Lifecycle
A detailed breakdown of the project life cycle is presented in module four, which discusses each of its component stages - Initiation, Strategic Planning, Execution, Control and Closure. The importance of setting targets using the SMART methodology is discussed - Specific, Measurable, Accurate, Realistic and Time-Bound - along with project charters, project resource planning and project cost control.
Module 5: Continuous Improvement
Module five examines the value of striving for continuous improvement at all stages throughout the project life cycle. The DMAIC project management approach is brought back into discussion, along with essential tools and techniques for monitoring and analysing the performance of a project at various stages.
