During the project management training we have been organizing for many years, we have been collecting participants’ opinions on their needs. It turned out that most often they simply wanted to learn the best project management practices in a quick and efficient manner without unnecessary bureaucracy. Very often the participants also reported that they already had had some knowledge on project management but were not able to “put it together” on their own. The training was designed to meet the two most frequent needs of the participants.
You will learn best practices in project management quickly and efficiently.
You will organize your knowledge in a systematic manner
You will harmonize project management standards in your company
The project management training programme includes best practices from recognised standards and methodologies (PMBOK®, Prince 2, SCRUM) that can be readily applied.
The training has been designed in such a way that it can be best adapted to the participants’ needs. We modify the scope and difficulty of the case study carried out during the training, depending on the scope of responsibility, knowledge and professional experience. The training works very well for:
Managers and functional managers who manage projects or supervise project managers
Project Managers who start work in this position or will soon take on such responsibility
Management staff, supervising the implementation of projects in the organisation
What will you learn at the training on project management?
You will learn how to plan your project and all its stages properly
It is very important to learn to plan all stages of the project properly; without a good plan there is no good action. So we teach a sound foundation from which every project can be started
You will learn how to work on several projects simultaneously
Working on several projects simultaneously is a nightmare for many employees. We try to acquaint you with project management to such an extent that you may no longer view simultaneous work on several projects as a nightmare, but as an interesting challenge.
You will adapt project management tools to the specific characteristics of your work
Employees of different companies have different specific characteristics of their work. We understand this and we know how important it is to adapt tools to specific needs and working styles. We know that what works for some will be completely useless to others.
You will learn project monitoring and control techniques.
We teach not only how to plan but also how to control the project effectively, and how to monitor it in an efficient way. Without monitoring, you don't know what has actually been (or not have been) done.
