BCS Foundation Certificate in IS Project Management

ISEB Foundation in IS Project Management focuses on project management issues in the context of IS/IT applications. The Foundation in IS Project Management course considers the nature of projects and project work and the need for effective project planning. It then focuses on monitoring and control, change control, configuration management and quality issues, before considering project estimation and risk. It concludes with essentials of project organisation and communication.

The Foundation in IS Project Management training course acts as an important first stepping stone in acquiring a more formal knowledge of IS/IT project management principles and is ideal for those about to take up a management role for the first time. Each participant is provided with a copy of the BCS textbook Project Management for IT-Related Projects which defines the basis of the course.

We also provide private and in-company Foundation in IS Project Management courses. Call +44 (0)1273 622272 to discuss.
