Project Management course: what you need to know

It is also crucial to delegate and get help for the project, there is often too much for one person to do! A project usually involves several people from several departments.

Here are some more example phrases:

  • Can you send me a status report?: A request for a report containing the progress of the project and where it is currently at.
  • Due date: the deadline.
  • The project manager: the person in charge of the project.
  • The task is due at the end of the month: the deadline for the task is the last day of this month.
  • To assign someone a task: to give somebody a specific job to do on the project.

To take over: to replace another person on a task.

Did you know that planning to fail is failing to plan? Well it’s true for most things, including your work projects. Before embarking on any project large or small, it’s important to take the time to think about the project as a whole from start to finish. If you’re organizing a project for the first time, try using our five stages below as a guide.

 Step #1 Conception

Before starting work on your project, the very first thing you should do is hammer out the essentials of what it is intended to achieve, and what it will involve. Start by asking yourself the following questions:

  • What is the end goal?
  • Who should be involved?
  • What are the deliverables?
  • Is there a deadline?
  • Are there various stages and deadlines?

 Step #2 Planning

Once you’ve understood the basics, you can start planning how you’ll accomplish your project. This is when you need to start considering details such as:

  • Who, what, where, when, and why
  • How will you measure the success of the project?
  • Is there a hierarchy in the importance of your goals?
  • Define the timeframe

An important part of planning also includes diving the work into stages and delegating different aspects of the project to different collaborators, all while communicating your findings from the conception and planning stage of your project organization.

Step #3 Execution

This is the stage of the project when you actually carry out the work. You and your collaborators should be actively working on your various parts of the project at this stage, with regular progress reports and check-in meetings to make sure everyone stays on the same page with regards to objectives and deadlines.

Step #4 Monitoring

As the project matures and reaches completion, you’ll need to start looking back at the objectives outlined in the conception stage. Are you still on track to meet them? Is the project still evolving with the defined constraints (time, budget, etc.)? Do you need to incorporate or communicate any significant deviations from the plan? To monitor the evolution of the project, you’ll need to set up systems to track quality, cost, and time performance, depending on the type of project you’re organizing.

Step #5 Close

Once the project has been completed, you can breathe easy. But, there’s still one final step to complete before you can put it to bed. The closing stage is about reflecting on the success of your project, identifying things that were done well and things that could be improved for next time. If there are any loose ends, this is the time to tie them up. And of course, it’s also the opportunity to thank your collaborators.

When it comes to presenting your project to your colleagues and collaborators, you’ll need to have confidence in your oral communication skills first of all. Speaking effectively in a foreign language requires a strong foundation in grammar and vocabulary, as well as clear pronunciation and an engaging speaking style.

 Here are some of our top tips for presenting a project when it comes to content:

  • Be clear on your main message
  • Be ruthless: cut out the detail to fit the time limit
  • Define a clear structure with an introduction, main points, and a conclusion
  • Use linking words to guide your audience through the presentation
  • Don’t forget the details: do you need a projector; have you printed the handouts?

Knowing how to organize and present a project in English is a useful skill for any job in the international sphere, but there are four key sectors where you’ll need to take the time to perfect it. Let’s take a look at them.


Jobs in the construction industry (including infrastructure and architecture) revolve around project work. Every contract that keeps a company in this industry afloat represents a project, for which reason the role of Project Manager is common in this field. Construction projects require collaboration between colleagues across the industry, from designers and architects to suppliers and construction workers.

An important aspect of organizing projects in the construction industry is mitigating risks and delays, particularly due to the wide scale of the projects and the number of moving parts. It will also be essential to indicate how you plan to stick to budget.


If you’re considering the manufacturing industry, we can tell you that project planning and management will be crucial to your success. Work in this field often happens with the joint collaboration of clients and manufacturing companies, which requires a well-defined project with clear deadlines and limits. Organizing projects in manufacturing requires a good handle on the production process and an eye for eliminating risks and ensuring health and safety at every stage.

As with any large scale project, you’ll need to be able to oversee a big budget and know how to distribute your funds to overcome issues that arise along the way. 

Finance and insurance

To organize a project in this industry, it’s essential to adopt a flexible project management style. The finance and insurance fields are often subject to quick and unforeseen changes, meaning that projects in the work must be able to ride the storm and adapt accordingly. 

Another key aspect of organizing projects in this industry is being open to scrutiny and remaining accountable. As an industry where you’re often handling other people’s money, you’ll need to know your project in intimate detail and be able to answer difficult questions from investors at the drop of a hat.
