Who is this training for?

Leadership Center

During the project management training courses we have organised over the years, we have collected participants’ opinions on their needs. It turned out that most often, they simply wanted to learn the best practices of project management quickly and effectively without unnecessary bureaucracy. Very often, participants also reported that they already had had some knowledge of project management, but they were unable to “put it together” on their own. The training was designed to meet these two needs, which are most frequently expressed by the training participants.


  • You will quickly and effectively learn best practices of project management
  • You will systematise your knowledge
  • You will standardise project management standards within the company


The project management training programme incorporates best practices from recognised standards and methodologies (PMBOK®, Prince 2, SCRUM), ready to be applied immediately.

The Fundamentals of Project Management training course has been designed in such a manner that it can be best adapted to the participants’ needs. Depending on their responsibilities, knowledge, and professional experience, we modify the scope and difficulty of the case study implemented during the training. The training works very well for:

Functional heads/ managers and who manage projects or supervise project managers

Project managers who are starting in this position or are about to take on such a responsibility

Managing staff  who oversee the implementation of projects in the organisation

Time to the end of enrolment:

What will you learn from the project management training?

You will learn how to properly plan
a project and all its stages

It is very important to learn how to properly plan all stages of a project, since there is no good action without a good plan. Therefore we teach a solid foundation from which to start any project.

You will learn how to work on several projects simultaneously

Working on several projects simultaneously is a nightmare for many employees. We try to accustom project management to this idea to such an extent that working on several projects simultaneously is no longer a nightmare, but an interesting challenge.

You will adapt project management tools to your specific work situation

Employees of different companies have different work characteristics. We understand this and know how important it is to match tools to specific needs and work styles. We know that what works for some will be completely useless for others.

You will learn project monitoring and control techniques

We teach not only how to plan and manage a project, but also how to monitor it effectively. Without monitoring, you don’t know what is really done and what is not.

Do you run a business?

As a boss, you too often oversee the details, get involved in small decisions and your people are not independent enough. You need to tie everything together. Based on tried and tested methods, you commission “issues” for implementation, but they don’t get implemented because too often your people can’t translate your idea into concrete actions. You need to step up a level, get away from operational work and delegate most issues to the ones you trust. You don’t feel confident and safe handing over new, big projects to people on your team because you’ve always “kept on your toes”.

Do you manage a team?

You are involved in the implementation of “big issues” in which you need to involve other departments in the company, and you know it won’t be easy. There are ambitious items on your list of goals for the year that cannot be achieved “just by performing tasks”. You and your team are carrying out a lot of varied projects commissioned from above, and you want to keep them organised and under control. Your team is not aware that they are working on a project basis, and as a result you are unable to fulfil your plans.

Are you in charge of a project?

You do not have a formal project management role, the team assigned to the project are not your subordinates and you find it difficult to build authority. You don’t feel confident leading projects, you have become a PM without any training. No one has prepared you for this role, and you like to act in a conscious, concrete, and professional manner. You work on projects “on the fly” and that might have worked out for you for some time, but you get to the point where it’s not enough. You want to overcome the fear of doing something wrong because you’ve got a big new project on your hands that you’ll be responsible for. You want to structure your knowledge with proven project management methods and develop your competencies.

Do you want to develop?

You need practical knowledge and skills to help you progress on your managerial path. You like to work in an organised, structured way and towards a specific goal. You want to partner with others in the organisation to build your position in the team. You don’t like it when a client doesn’t take you seriously and you lack arguments in a discussion because you don’t feel confident about projects.

Project management that is simple, practical, and effective. It couldn't be simpler than that.

Project management is one of the most important skills these days and is useful in both the personal and professional sphere.

If you run a business:

You will structure your work consciously – and something that has been natural to you because you’ve been working this way all your life will take another shape so that you can delegate more to your team

You will be able to align departments around a common goal – you will be able to align the different departments in your company around common ventures, so that there are no situations where “everyone is pulling in their own direction”.

You will become the “sponsor” of the project – you will be able to change your role from being the boss that is indispensable in difficult situations to the “sponsor” of the project, who sets the direction and key criteria and supervises everything at a high level instead of making the tiniest decisions

You set the right priorities – you set a framework (although we prefer to use the term skeleton) in people’s thinking so that when preparing a solution for you, they take into account the things that are most important to you (time, budget, risk) without you having to point the finger at the important topics

You will build a sense of responsibility within the team – you will start to build a sense of responsibility within your team for a greater scope of work, and through this you will finally find time for important topics for which there was no space before, i.e. strategy, innovation, working with clients etc.

You will strengthen communication with your team – you will learn to translate your ideas so that people with less experience can keep up with you and meet your expectations

You will understand why what is obvious to you is so difficult and not obvious to your subordinates and why sometimes even the stars can’t give you true information

… and you can send the people you have the highest hopes for to participate in this training so that they can later to tell you what is worth transferring to your company.

If you manage a team as an owner or a head/manager:

You will move from working on tasks to working on projects – that is, instead of taking decisions too frequently and checking work statuses on micro-topics, you will talk about groups of tasks and the longer term. This means more time for managing and less time for checking

You will know how to translate ideas into projects – in such a way as to win support within the organisation. Even if your department is a support department and cost centre, and not a profit centre

You will use project management tools to manage your team – because many techniques such as goal setting, working with key people, risk and accountability will be useful to you in your day-to-day and operational work

You will deal with unrealistic expectations “from above” – and transform ideas that are disconnected from reality into concrete and realistic arrangements

You will be able to be a mentor – for your team so that they can develop by taking on more responsibility

You and your team will no longer waste time – by knowing what a well-run project looks like, you will be able to defend yourself against your people’s time being wasted by those who manage projects badly

You will learn proven techniques and tools – You will add a set of a dozen techniques and tools to your manager’s toolbox that will be useful at every stage of your career

And …. you will learn to recognise when it is worth committing to a project 110% and when a project is “a political issue” and needs to be approached differently

If you are leading projects as a coordinator, a project manager, or a head

You will learn how to run a project from A to Z – from the idea, to starting, planning, up to implementation and completion. And you will learn how to do it without unnecessary bureaucracy, but by focusing on the core

You will learn how to do it effectively – you will learn how to start working on a project in a simple way, choosing the right tools and techniques to do and not necessarily work  your fingers to the bone

You will learn the world’s simplest project management method, the 12 KISS PM® questions, which will put you in control of a project in just a few minutes

You will learn project management techniques – you will practice each technique so that you not only know it exists, but you will also know how to use it

You will learn a case study – you will work on your project and on the examples of other training participants

You will know how to choose the right way to do project work – suited to the challenge you are facing. Because you don’t always need a schedule and you don’t have to use all the techniques you’ve learnt in every single project

Do you want to get promoted?

You will learn to translate ideas into projects – and you will know how to talk about them so that their value is recognised by decision-makers

You will be able to turn an idea into reality – and see it through to completion despite the problems

You will learn the competence of the future – from a practical perspective. Without projects, there is no business. No matter what happens to your company or yourself, these skills will always be useful to you

You will learn the truth about what determines promotion – and that hard work alone is not enough

Build on a solid foundation, not a fad

What is unique about this particular training?

Practical knowledge with live case studies

During the training you will learn the methods and techniques, apply them to your project straight away, and practice them on a project shared by the whole group;  you will be able to see how the same techniques are used by other participants. Thus you will not only know how to use the theory in one project, but you will understand its application in many situations. As a result, you will learn a lot more. And on top of that, the case studies are not pre-prepared and purely theoretical, but the instructor shows you that it works because the challenges are brought by the participants. Including you!

Workshop training

There is a lot of knowledge to impart, and the lecture part takes up about 30% of the time. In contrast, most of the time you work in mixed groups to develop solutions under the projects. We transfer knowledge through practice, examples, and activity. If you are looking for training during which you will just listen and relax, this is the wrong choice.

The only training based on the 12 KISS PM® questions method

Only this training will allow you to learn a method that will make it possible to start a project in 12 minutes and to apply project management without lengthy training. The method is based on questions asked using simple, direct language, which makes it easier for you to engage people in your project, because you won’t bombard them with incomprehensible jargon like: business case, stakeholders, performance report, but, instead, you will e.g. ask why the project is important, who needs to be involved and what has been done. And you’ll get a humanly answer. And not a puzzled look.

Intelligent sense of humour

Our team includes people who like others and can crack an intelligent joke. As a result, knowledge enters much better and more effectively. And because the content is at a very high level, you don’t even realize how quickly your time will pass. If you are not doing a project while having fun at the same time, you are doing something wrong. If you are not having fun at the training, then we are doing something wrong.

A unique problem-solving model

A Problem Solver – in this training we will show you a tool to solve all your project-related problems. It is our proprietary model that allows you to understand where your problems come from and how to remedy them. The model is based on research conducted on several hundred projects, showing the most common problems faced by over 80% of project managers. In this training, you will see how to use this model to analyse and solve the problems you face.

You will get a set of ready-to-use templates

You will get 10 template-tools to use in your projects right away. At the same time, these are notes from the case studies you have worked on during the training. In addition, there are a dozen boards with a record of the completed exercises. You can keep the complete notes of the joint work forever. And, as a gift to each participant, we are giving away a bestseller from our Project Leader Store – the “Black Notebook” template for project management, problem control, change management and more.

Unique tools

During the training, you will learn tools, tricks and techniques that are used only by us, because they are proprietary patents for facilitating project work and solving complex problems – the Benefits Matrix (goal setting), the 12 KISS PM® Questions Project Chart for starting projects, the 12 KISS PM® Questions charts for working with people who have not been to the training, or estimating using a method that combines planning poker with the Delphi method and the rock, paper, scissors game. You won’t find this in any other training course.

Tailoring the training to you

Prior to the training, you will provide us with your expectations (in the form of a questionnaire) and complete the PM Cube® survey. You’ll receive a report on you and your approach to projects compared to companies of a similar industry, size, kind, and type of implemented project. This is the only report of its kind that compares your answers to nearly 500 other companies! You know if you are better or worse at project management than similar companies. During the training we will discuss the report and the lessons it brings to you and your company.

Access to nearly 300 films on YT

Providing a deeper insight into  topics that will be most important to you. That’s over 100 hours of free content. This channel is a virtual mentor for project management in practice. The material you receive will be combined with relevant video content. You don’t have to watch everything, just what you  need at the time. And the best thing is that, as you progress, you will still be able to add as much knowledge as you need at the moment, free of charge.

100% satisfaction guarantee

If at any point during the training you decide that something is not working for you, then you can leave the training. And we refund your money without any discussion. We have the same approach to the closed training courses. We can stop them at any moment, so you don’t waste your time and money. And we take it upon ourselves to rectify the situation. However, this hasn’t happened in over 13 years, and it has occurred exactly three times out of several hundred implementations in the entire history of our company.. On the other hand, we take 100% responsibility for delivering on our promise.

Module 2 - Project planning

Once you know what is involved and you have a Project Chart initiating the project, we move on to planning.


At this stage, you delve step-by-step into project-related techniques for each of the 12 key project areas.


You are given the techniques, methods, and tools to be able to plan a project accurately if necessary. And to do it consciously. Because what distinguishes the 12 KISS PM ® Questions approach is the assumption that you start with the simplest possible approach and 3 key elements of a project and only reach for more tools when the situation demands it.


This keeps your approach light and adaptable.


Business case – Why is this project important?


  • The “What happens if I don’t…” method.
  • “From” and “To” motivation
  • The 5 x why method
  • How to link the project to the business criteria relevant to decision-makers

Opportunities – What can particularly help?


  • Identification of opportunities
  • The peculiarity of working with opportunities
  • Surprise in risk – opportunities
  • Exercise: Looking for opportunities in the project

Module 3 - Project monitoring and control (project inspection)

A good plan needs to be implemented and, to paraphrase a well-known saying, “No project plan survives contact with reality.”


This is not entirely true, because in the module presented above you will learn how to factor variability into your plan and how to make sure you are moving in the intended direction despite problems, challenges, materialising risks, conflicts, and anything else that might be holding you back.


At the same time, you will learn how to make reporting a part of the job and support both you and the team, rather than being a bureaucratic chore that nobody likes.


Reporting – How will you monitor the progress of the project?


  • Why you can’t accept the answer “It depends”
  • The 2x and 50% rule

  • 3 levels for checking project progress
  • Status meetings with the team – how to do them effectively
  • What to focus on in meetings with the team
  • What the sponsor and decision-makers care about


Change management – How will you implement change?


  • Cube effect in the project
  • The world’s simplest change management procedure
  • The Black Notebook – How to get questions, problems, decisions and change under control in a project

Module 4 - Project Implementation. Problem Solving

Even if you do everything right, reality can still surprise you with problems.


It turns out that what is described in the books is most often a “mainstream success scenario,” which assumes that everyone wants to support your project, is committed and you only need to use the proposed techniques to succeed.


In fact, you will find that you will encounter problems that are due to the nature of the projects, their uniqueness, and the need for progressive clarification.


Therefore, you will learn a model to deal with the problems you encounter. In this module we will laser in on the problems that you and other participants report to us.


Problem Solver – How to solve any problem in a project


A tool for solving all problems in a project


5 levels of problems


Statistics of the most common problems


  • A project coward
  • A phantom sponsor

FAQ - Frequently asked questions

Is the training certified?


Yes, you will receive a named certificate of participation with the instructor’s signature, in an electronic and a paper form.

Is the training tailored to each industry?


Yes. We have delivered the Fundamentals of Project Management training to most industries, including manufacturing, retail, construction, e-commerce, telecommunications, jewellery, retail, and many others.

If one person gets trained (open training), does it make any sense if the rest of the company will work as before?


Yes, it makes sense. You will structure your work and projects. You can pass on the knowledge gained during the training to the rest of the team, and you will be able to implement the new proven way of working within the team. Perhaps this will be the first “contribution” changing the attitude and way of working for all team members.

Is the training effective? Taking into account the form of training (online)?


The knowledge imparted in the classroom and during online training is essentially the same, the key is the form of delivery. Our Coaches are experienced in delivering online training. The group exercises, supplementary materials are identical to the stationary training. An additional plus is that the participant can take part in the training without leaving home.

We do not implement projects as a whole, but only individual activities under the project. Does it make sense for us to take part in this training?


This does not matter whether you implement one project as a whole. Project knowledge will be valuable. To implement projects well and efficiently, you need to know the different phases of project delivery –  such as initiation, planning, execution, monitoring, and closure. This provides a framework for you and your team to organise the project process. During the individual activities that make up a project, you need to look at the bigger picture, not just at the project outcomes.

Will there be a recording of the training? Can the training be recorded?


We do not record the training. In exceptional circumstances, if you report that you will not be able to attend the training, it is possible to reschedule.

Can I enrol as an individual, not through a company?


Yes, you can enrol as an individual.

Is the training tailored to each industry?


Yes. We have delivered the Fundamentals of  Management training to most industries, including manufacturing, retail, construction, e-commerce, telecommunications, jewellery, retail, and many others.

Is the training certified?


Yes, you will receive a named certificate of participation with the instructor’s signature, in an electronic and a paper form.

Is this good training for beginners?


Yes. This is a training course that will help you learn best practices of project management quickly and effectively. Those at a beginner level will be able  to learn proven and effective ways to plan and execute projects and systematise their knowledge.

If we are operating ‘intuitively’, will the Fundamentals of Project Management training change that?


Many businesses operate intuitively for some time. The training allows you to detect what you are doing well and what you need to maintain, but also what you are missing and what needs to be supplemented. The intention is simple – not to kill creativity and good instincts with theory, but to reinforce them with awareness of what to focus on.

I work in a corporation with an imposed project management method. What will I take from the training for myself? Will anything be useful to me?


Corporations are specific, but you have the freedom to organise your own and your team’s work. The Fundamentals of Project Management training is compatible with global project management standards, so what you learn can be used virtually anywhere.

Are the 12 KISS PM® Questions and the Fundamentals of Project Management the same thing?


The 12  KISS PM® Questions is a method invented to work on a single project that has proven to be more universal. It forms the basis of the Fundamentals of Project Management training.

How do I convince my boss to give me the funding for this?


This training pays for itself when you attend it. Ask for a list of his problems and compare with how we solve them. If there is a  match, then print out this page and tick in the appropriate places as needed. The cost is ridiculous compared to the benefits.

Is it possible to pay for participation in the event on instalments?


Yes. Contact us and we will direct you. Then you can technically make your payment through our online store, the Project Leader Store. You add the training to your basket and select the option to pay on instalments. The instalments are processed by our payment processing partner. Not by us.

Is it useful to me if the company works in its own unique way?


Yes. Companies can be as unique and specific as they want. Each of them is. But there is one management. And regardless of the industry, size of the company, etc., similar rules apply. Chances are you won’t use everything, but even that’s not necessary. The Fundamentals of Project Management offers customisation and flexibility. It’s practical and workshop training….

How many people can attend the training using 1 access?


There should be one person per one access. Obviously, it’s hard to check, but let’s respect each other. If you have  more people that want to enrol, then let us know at biuro@leadership-center.pl, describe how big the group is and we’ll think about a solution.

I have already read your book “Project management step by step”, will there be more than that during the training?


Yes, it’s the next stage of development. If you know the book, you know what to expect from a substantive point of view. I invite you to participate – there will be a lot more than in the book.

I watch your YouTube channel – if I have watched all the episodes, will I learn anything new?


Yes. Everything will be laid out in a coherent workshop, and you’ll get tools, templates, examples, and case studies that I haven’t talked about on the channel.

Will you give me a guarantee of success?


And you will give me a guarantee that you will do everything I pass on to you? Then yes, I will. I can guarantee that the methods I will show you work because they are proven. You have to add your own work to make them function. In projects, even the best managed ones, there is no guarantee of success. There is only good risk management. And the Fundamentals of Project Management training is such risk management – you will significantly increase your chances of success and reduce the likelihood of failure.

Why is this training so extensive?


The Fundamentals of Project Management is a workshop training focused on project work. We work in a small group on a group example and individual examples. You spend 2 days learning the methods (knowledge) and using them (skills) in an intimate group working in a workshop  manner on specific case studies.

Will the training be held using Teams, Zoom, or another tool? What platform will it take place on?


The training will take place on the Zoom platform.

Who will deliver the training?


Mariusz Kapusta, see above for information about the instructor.

Will topics related to schedule and risk be addressed?


Yes, look at the programme. Working with time, risk, and scope – such topics will definitely be addressed.

Will communication and negotiations techniques be discussed?


To some extent. Communication is a big part of the project, so it will come up everywhere. When it comes to project negotiations, you will learn techniques and methods to prepare yourself a ‘project contract,” or a Project Chart, which will allow you to talk to decision-makers about what you are agreeing to. And by learning about the methods for working with stakeholders and managing change, you will be able to defend your position. However, we won’t be getting to the level of a negotiations exercise.

What comes next after the Fundamentals of Project Management training?


Depending on who you are and what you are planning. Many business owners and managers choose to train their entire team as a next step. Project managers invite us to help train their teams, because without a common understanding things do not work. Sometimes the next step is to audit the company and prepare their own project work process. As we get to know one another at the  Fundamentals training, we can offer you further advice.

    Opinions about us

    Mr Mariusz has extensive knowledge and experience in the areas he has trained us in. The practical aspect of the knowledge and PM tools offered by Mr Mariusz deserve special emphasis. The trainings were purely workshop-based and pragmatic in nature. They contained a minimum of theory, imparted in a very accessible manner. The PM tools and techniques proposed to the participants were perfectly matched to the specifics and size of the actual projects conducted by the employees and were thus successfully implemented by the participants immediately after the training. The participants of his training sessions emphasised the extreme simplicity and effectiveness of the solutions offered.

    We had the pleasure of cooperating with the Leadership Center company and Mr Mariusz Kapusta during a consulting and training project related to the improvement of project management methodology in our company. In our opinion, Mr Mariusz is a true professional who is passionate about project management. He was able to convey the method of effective portfolio management in our company in a substantive and practical manner. With the support of the Leadership Center, we have taken our PM environment to the next level. We highly evaluate our cooperation with the Leadership Center and Mr. Mariusz Kapusta and we sincerely recommend him as a business partner.

    The Leadership Centre was chosen from among many other ones thanks to its outstanding attention to needs analysis, as well as its knowledge of our products and industry. After an in-depth needs analysis, a workshop was designed, which was not only dedicated to the profile of the participants, but which also ensured a pleasant and creative atmosphere. Following the workshop, an evaluation was carried out by the Leadership Center. We appreciate their exceptional commitment and care for the outcome. In our opinion, the Leadership Center is a valuable training partner. We can certainly recommend it to other companies.

    Thanks to the interactive format and the adaptation of the training content to the specifics of the company, the participants were able to develop a coherent action plan, ways of monitoring and controlling their work in one day, so that they could put it into practice immediately. The training not only gave participants specific tools, but also made them aware of the relationship between good planning and project implementation. We recommend working with Leadership Center as a company that provides professional solutions in an interesting and effective way.
