This presentation explores the principles of project management, using the SMART Women project as a case study. The SMART Women project provided a tailored high-level management training programme specifically for women. It was financed through the Objective One European Social Fund and Learning and Skills Council investment in higher-level skills for women fund. The training enabled women to progress into an employment domain where they are under-represented, management, by providing personal development and skills development workshops to complement accredited management training. The award winning SMART women project model has been replicated throughout Europe. The purpose of the presentation is to follow the development of the SMART Women project from conception to legacy, using a project management framework. Comparisons will then be made with a sport planning model, to demonstrate how project management principles can be applied to achieve similar successes in sport.
