Deeply Practical Project Management Training

How To Manage Projects Using The World-Wide Standard
Project Management Institute (PMI) Best Practices
In The Simplest, Most Deeply Practical Way!

Everything should be made as simple as possible, but no simpler.” - Albert Einstein

Project management is the key organizational skill, no matter where you are in an organization and what you are doing. It helps you know your project’s full scope, schedule, budget, and risks before you start. It helps you manage your projects to minimize surprises, meet expectations, and maximize the probability of success. And it helps build a sense of increasing achievement, morale, and continuous improvement.

Based on more than 25 years of experience and delivery of more than 200 project management training sessions, this course provides a deeply practical description of how to use the tried and true Project Management Institute (PMI) best practices to manage your projects through every stage of their life-cycle.

The project management processes are mapped across the project time-line, and the specific actions you need to take and documentation you need to prepare at each step are explained in an easy to follow thread.  The use of (free) software tools to support the project management process is explained.  The role and key skills of the Project Manager are described.  Templates are provided for all the key project management documents.  The course is end-to-end, comprehensive, and easy to understand.

The course content has benefited from more than ten years of feedback from thousands of people from dozens of organizations.  It is proven, practical, and complete, providing an end-to-end road-map that you can use as a checklist to apply the project management processes to your projects of any size, in any domain, to maximize their scope, schedule, cost, and risk performance. 

If you have a project you need to manage right now, or just wish to get a solid grounding in practical application of the standard project management best practices, this course can really help.  You will also earn 16 Professional Development Units (PDU's).
