Course Overview

Projects that typically go beyond budgets, timelines and even fail, are not due to a lack of expertise, from those managing projects, but mainly because of inadequate coordination of project activities, lack of integration and communication amongst stakeholders, and loss of control over contractors/vendors. Project coordination is the day-to-day management of activities within the project. The purpose of synchronizing projects is to enable a smooth flow of the workflow of your tasks.

What is the role of a Project Coordinator?

As a project coordinator, you typically support the project manager, to develop project strategies and organise tasks as required. The typical day-to-day duties of a project coordinator involve

  • Scheduling and organising projects,
  • Maintaining records,
  • Communicating with team members and stakeholders, and
  • Performing administrative duties

The key goal of project coordinators is to ensure that all projects are well-organised and get completed on time and within the budget. This requires developing multitasking skills, attention to detail, and strong communication skills. Project coordinators assist the project manager by coordinating tasks, and where require delegating tasks to team members, and other departments. Effective project coordination can enhance your team’s performance in the workplace.

How do I succeed as a project coordinator?

Enhancing your coordinating skills can be of value to any career or position that you may wish to pursue. Employers typically look for solid project management and coordination qualifications in applicants, as this experience proves key capabilities in communication, organisation, and troubleshooting.
