Why consolidate and certify your PM skills?
Organizations now understand that success is built on the success of their projects.
Today, organizations of all types and sizes understand that everything is a project – from implementing a new business system, to getting the boss to Europe and back over 10 days, to organizing a meeting. That means everyone in every functional area – from executive assistants to vice presidents – is a potential project manager. Top organizations foster success by cultivating strong project resources and supplying their people with the tools and formal training they need to get the job done right the first time.
Why formal training in Project Management?
Projects can have a lot of moving parts. Successfully managing them requires more than just using PM software to make Gantt charts. Without formal training, those who execute projects are essentially winging it – learning on the job through trial and error.
They cannot be sure that what they’re doing is right or wrong, missing something, or that the solution they implement is the best possible course of action. To excel at the job, a Project Manager requires concise, comprehensive formal training in best practices, current thinking, and tools of the trade.
Project managers are now expected to add value.
The PM field is becoming very competitive. Top PMs know that, in order to deliver on time, on spec, and on budget, they need to know all facets of the field and apply their knowledge nimbly and accurately. That means being able to communicate with the team, manage stakeholders, procure and plan, ensure quality, minimize risk, and so much more.
Truly competitive companies want Project Managers who can connect the work to the overall strategy, and add value by bringing a complete skill set to bear. A well-trained Project Manager trumps the person who’s winging it every time.
Participants will benefit from:
The ability to look at projects in a whole new light and manage them systematically and strategically
A huge kit of powerful new tools, documents and templates which can be used as is or modified to suit
Getting prepared to write the PMP® designation exam through mastery of the material and the required contact hours (please refer to pmi.org for complete application requirements)
Hands-on practice applying the material through a simulated project woven throughout the program – our ‘secret sauce’ for accelerated, intensified learning
The Masters Certificate in Project Management is ideal for:
- Mid- and senior-level managers who have completed an introductory project management program in recent years, and must now lead more complex projects
- Anyone who does NOT have their PMP designation from PMI and who wishes to consolidate and certify their project management training for career success
- Project Managers from any industry with at least one year’s experience, who wish to move up to a higher level in their field
Participants will receive all program learning materials electronically and are asked to bring a suitable tablet or laptop PC to class. Alternative arrangements are available upon request.
