Project Management Training Courses Overview

Our Project Management Training Courses cover project management in depth. This is ideal for those people who have regular projects to deliver in their role and need thorough project management training. As you can see from the contents below we cover a wide variety of subjects, but if there is specific content you would like in the course, please talk to us and we can adapt the training to suit your needs. And we will do this at no extra cost.

This is a comprehensive course and during the session we have time to explore the issues and ideas in depth. Participants discuss their projects in detail. This means that at each step of the programme the participants review their projects in discussion with the trainer and other participants. Participants get a good understanding of project management principles, by learning how to apply the new ideas to their work. In two days they gain more in depth ideas on how to overcome the challenges of project management, applied to their own situations.

Pricing

The price of this project management training depends on a number of factors; how many people you need to train; the length of the training you require; the level of complexity you require,;your location and other factors.  So please contact us for a detailed proposal and price.

Format

  • Group sizes tend to be up to 12 participants because we encourage each person to discuss their projects and how our ideas apply. We can include more people, which  means participants discuss thier projects in small groups rather than to the large group as a whole.
  • The courses are delivered as In-House Training, which means they happen either in your offices, or in a venue chosen by you.

Project Management Training Courses - Objectives

Project Management Training Courses - Style

We describe our sessions as workshops, which means the participnats are actively involved in thinking, or doing at every step. We discuss each idea as it is introduced to ensure understanding. In addition, these ideas are illustrated using the participants’ projects. There is extensive discussion based of the participants’ projects. This is followed up with discussion in large group and in small groups and the practice of ideas in small groups. Finally, individual action plans are developed at the close.

Tailore to your needs

If you have specific needs for project management training, or if you would like us to focus on key aspects of project management in the training, then we can do this. We can discuss what your needs are and adapt the training course to fit these requirements, which will ensure the training is more relevant for the participants.
