When communicating your project, knowing how to present information electronically can make it easier to understand.
In this part of the course we look at how we can build an electronic presentation that will help us to convey our message to an audience professionally.
One tool that is very useful is mindmapping; it allows us to layout our ideas and plan. It can assist us to see relationships between ideas and concepts. This is particularly useful for those who prefer visual layouts for informatio rather than lists. We will look at electronic and paper methods of mindmapping.
Knowing how to communicate the reason for establishing the project is essential. In this topic you will look at how we communicate generally, in terms of verbal, non-verbal, and written communication, and specifically related to the presenting the business case of a project.
In this section, we will define the project and look at the various stages of the project management cycle. This includes an overview of change management, the project lifecycle and a look at the various members of the project team.
Through Topic 8 we will examine how to implement the goals of a project using project tools and techniques, risk analysis and management techniques.
Understand the key elements of a project, including planning, analysis, sequencing and scheduling
As a project ends we need to understand how to finalise the project, and determine whether the project met its objectives, adhered to milestones, and examine feedback.

I never got around to doing it in May and again in June I hadn't done any of it. On the 28th June I finally started. I was hooked from Day 1 and threw myself into it. I learned so much and it was perfect timing. I've got the most beautiful reports to submit in my Diploma certificate I'm currently completing. I'm using Scholar properly and I can reference now too!! Plus One Note - who knew how this would change my life - now I don't have to email myself links to webpages and try to remember why I sent it 😊
