Managing Projects, People & Yourself ZAS206

Hobart, Launceston, Cradle Coast


Project management is a desired skill for any employee in the applied science field. Science can be creative and often unpredictable. It is important for a project manager to assess the known and unknown risks and make sure the risks they take are calculated. Project management involves planning, organising and controlling to ensure a successful outcome. Project management is a way of thinking and behaving as well as analysing and presenting data.
