Project Management Fundamentals (June)

Event description

These are free events designed for members of the public clinical mental health workforce in Victoria, (staff employed at Area Mental Health Services, Forensicare or mental health staff from RCH) and lived experience workforces (LEW) working in either public clinical or community mental health state-funded roles. Other workforce in partner organisations, such as AOD organisations or ACCHOs, may sometimes be eligible. Please note, if you do register for an event and it is not clear you are part of the intended audience, your registration will be confirmed two weeks prior to the event start date, or earlier.

This training aligns to Capability 14 (Embedding evidence-informed continuous improvement) of the Victorian Mental Health & Wellbeing Workforce Capability Framework.

Attendees must attend both sessions.

While project management skills are obviously important for project managers, interestingly the methods and tools that project managers use can be helpful for everyone as everyone undertakes projects!

Any task that requires some preparation to achieve a successful outcome will probably be done better by using a few project management methods somewhere in the process. Project management methods can help in the planning and managing of all sorts of tasks, especially complex activities.
