Project management basics teaches you a practical way to successfully manage projects so they finish on time.  There are no vague academic theories or concepts.

You quickly learn proven techniques from reading & lectures and apply them to a realistic case study. Your instructor is an experienced project pro; not an academic. You work directly with them when you want.  The two of you meet in private video conferences to review your plans, schedules and status reports.  You practice running planning meetings and presenting your project plans in private online sessions with your instructor.  You learn all the skills you need for project success and get practice using them.

Interacting with Your Mentor On Questions, Assignments & Presentations

Private Instructor Coaching and Mentoring

Build your Project Management Basics skills as you Learn by Doing with an expert PM as your coach. Working individually with your instructor, you practice actually managing a project from the first meeting to the last report. You meet with the project sponsor to define the scope, then interview the stakeholders for their requirements. Your instructor is coaching you as you go. When you have a misstep, your instructor will stop the meeting to explain where you went wrong. Then he’ll back things up and let you try it again. Next you’ll take that information, apply what you have learned in the reading and lectures and build your plan and schedule. You will use several estimating techniques with the team and present your work to the sponsor in another live meeting. Finally, you launch the project and get actual status data from your team. You spot problems, take correct action and make another live presentation to the executives. Your instructor gives you coaching and mentoring at every step in your project management course. 303-596-0000

The Most Instructor Contact 

Your instructor meets with you in a video conference to customize your course before you start. He will tailor it to your schedule and goals. You and your instructor work together. There is no classroom of 50 students competing for answers. You control the pace and schedule so it fits REP (4)your work and life. You meet with your instructor as often as you need via live video conferences or phone conversations, from anywhere in the world. The two of you go over assignments and discuss how to apply the techniques to your “real” projects at work.  This is learn-by-doing where you practice using every tool and technique and get coaching from your instructor at every step in your project management course.

team1fpThere are special techniques you will learn for managing a team that produces high-performance results. One leadership style does not fit all team members. So you learn several styles and master the ability to “read” each team member. Then you learn to use the right leadership style for each person. You will also master techniques to stimulate high productivity and quality standards on all your projects. You practice these leadership skills in live online simulations with your instructor 303-596-0000
