What you'll learn in this project management training:

Many projects are performed by highly competent and effective people who have little or no project management training. They perform projects like process improvement, marketing campaign development, new product development, event planning and production, and other “tasks” which are projects. Learning project management on the job is an unnecessary burden in an already challenging position.

This course provides practical skills, concepts, and principles you can take back to the job – along with insights you’ll need to adapt them to specific project environments.  This practical perspective is designed into the learning flow by minimizing time spent in instructor-led segments (~30%) and maximizing time devoted to interactive events (~70%).  Throughout the course, we deploy a variety of types of interactive events, ranging from:
  • Whole group discussions
  • Multiple configurations of structured activities (individual, paired, small group, and whole class)
  • Case study based team exercises (3 basic cases are provided, which can be modestly tailored to the learners’ needs in the classroom in real time.)
The goal of this course is to achieve quality performance through effective planning and control. We use a process orientation and an analytical, systems-oriented approach to project-related problem solving and decision making. Throughout the course, we integrate the need for collaboration and clear communications among people, often in multiple organizations. In addition, we do highlight these interpersonal and relationship skills in two specific areas:
  • Module 2 – People & Projects
  • Module 8 – Executing, Communicating and Developing the Team
Also throughout this course, learners will be given an opportunity to reflect on the learning that could best serve their needs in real-world projects.  At the end of each module, after a summary of the topics covered, time and space are provided to complete Learning Journal entries.  At the end of the course, we ask everyone to review the learning journal entries and complete a Personal Action Plan, including both short and longer term objectives.

As the results of the interactivities and the learning opportunities are shared in the classroom, learners will come away enriched by much more than the information inherent in the courseware and the knowledge imparted by an experienced instructor.  Just as, or perhaps even more important than these traditional learning sources, this course maximizes the potential for learning from each other.
