Transnet Centre for Business Management of Projects

Who We Are

The Transnet Centre for Business Management of Projects commits itself to assisting organisations and individuals throughout Africa to deliver better project results. The Centre achieves this through focused training, research and coaching by placing particular emphasis on the critical interface between business and project teams during the development and implementation stages of high-risk capital projects.

What We Do

Our service offering includes:

Applied academic research into the total spectrum of business management of projects.

Consultative coaching to assist organisations (management teams and individuals) to create the desired environment to better manage the interface between business planning and scope development during the front-end phase of capital projects.


Training and development to equip participants with core skills to manage projects and and to also embark on a career pathway of either becoming professional project managers or business executives accountable for the management of projects. Our training options therefore cover a wide spectrum – starting with the fundamentals of project management and advancing to the business skills required in the board room to ensure that projects deliver the business advantages as agreed when capital is sanctioned. The options are:

  • Lean Project Management
