Project Organization – “be organized”

In this course, you will learn about how to organize projects, define roles and responsibilities, draw up a project charter, understand different organization models, assemble and develop effective project teams and manage stakeholders.

The task of doing the work and ensuring that clients and users receive the project deliverables within the agreed quality, time and cost requirements will be performed by people. It is therefore important that the project is organized according to project size and complexity, that the project team is made up of professionals with the necessary expertise and skills, and that roles and responsibilities are clearly defined.

Having completed this course, you will be able to organize projects:

  • Define roles and responsibilities
  • Draw up a project charter
  • Understand different organization models
  • Assemble and develop effective project teams
  • Manage stakeholders

Good projects also depend on good cooperation within the project team. Good cooperation between people from different departments and different companies does not necessarily happen by itself. Good cooperation in project teams is the result of clear roles and responsibilities, a skilled and respected project owner and project manager, correspondence between responsibility and authority, a project team with the necessary functional expertise and complementary team roles, a willingness to embrace innovation and critical thinking, clear and honest communication, and – last but not least – a real desire to succeed as a team.


The course is based on the international project management standards “A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge” from the Project Management Institute (USA), “Managing Successful Projects with PRINCE2” from Axelos (UK) and ISO 21500 “Guidance on Project Management”.
