 Helping you reach your goals

 

our training approach

We believe people learn best through a combination of teaching methods.  Everyone learns differently, whether through discussion, independent processing of concepts (visual, experiential, tactile, and audible), and hands-on application.  


Our course development is designed based on this philosophy, supported by adult learning theory to maximize the experience of the student, increasing retention and direct application outside of the classroom. All of our training is instructor led.


Our offerings

Our already developed training classes include Introduction to Project Management and Managing Projects with Microsoft Project. We can deliver one of our existing courses or develop a custom one to meet your project training needs.  


Here are several examples of our training topics we can customize for your organization.

  • Portfolio & Resource Management
  • Stakeholder and Communications Management
  • Agile / Scrum Methodology


Project management overview

Audience:  General

This 2-hour overview provides fundamental project management concepts and frameworks and is an excellent introduction for an organization seeking to develop common concepts and terminology across a range of participants / stakeholders.


Project management 101

Audience: project team members, functional managers, executive managers - anyone participating in or supporting projects 

This 1-day class provides fundamental concepts and frameworks, as well as end-to-end project life cycle phases and activities essential for delivering successful projects.  Great introduction for non-project managers who need to be able to effectively collaborate on projects. 


Introduction to Managing projects

Audience:  Project Managers (new & experienced), project team members, sponsors, and functional managers directly involved with project work

This hands-on 4-day course introduces best practices and fundamental skills needed to successfully complete projects.  The course includes "reality checks" with concepts, as well as full project lifecycle simulation applying tools and techniques in a dynamic team environment.  Basic project management tools, as well as related examples and workshops will be integrated with the course delivery to ensure the content is relevant to the student's real work experience.


Managing projects with Microsoft project 2010/2013

Audience:  Project and Resource Managers

Learn how to run project schedules instead of project schedules running you. Creating and maintaining an accurate schedule is one of the primary skills a project manager needs to master. MS Project is a powerful tool for this purpose, and is the most widely used in the industry. However it is not intuitive and poses many pitfalls to the unknowing user. This hands-on class provides fundamental use of MS Project to create and maintain a dynamic schedule. Common mistakes and how to fix them will help novices and scheduling veterans alike leverage the strengths of MS Project.
