Business problems addressed by our training courses:

  • The most popular game in project management is: Getting the wrong thing right!
    Learn how to get the right things right (and that the right thing may not always turn out to be what was first thought of).
  • Too much to do and not enough Resources?
    Our multiple projects training helps you manage Resources and priorities for projects.
  • The day you finish your project is the day you learn that what you thought your customer wanted is not actually what they really needed.
    Learn to manage and love IWIKIWISI (I WIll Know It When I See It) customers.
  • A project gets to be a year late, one day at a time.
    Learn to deliver what's needed when it's needed with good old fashioned governance and scheduling.
  • The more ridiculous the deadline, the more it costs to meet it.
    Learn how to deliver projects with tight budgets.
  • Any project can be estimated accurately (once it's completed).
    Learn how to schedule projects effectively and as accurately as possible.
  • You can con a sucker into committing to an impossible deadline, but you cannot con them into meeting it.
    Learn how to deliver projects with tight timelines.
  • A little risk management saves a lot of fan cleaning.
    Learn a Risk Management method that manages Risk effectively, automatically calculates Contingency and reflects the calculated contingency in your schedule for a much better chance of finishing on time.
  • Meetings are events in which minutes are kept and hours are lost.
    Learn how to manage and schedule Resource constrained projects.
  • The nice thing about not planning is that failure comes as a complete surprise rather than being preceded by a period of worry and depression.
