Mastering the Fundamentals of Managing Projects:
Case Studies, Group Exercises and Practical Experience
Led by Your Company’s Trainer
Mastering the Fundamentals of Managing Projects is a blended learning program designed to teach the principles, key concepts and core techniques of project management for practical application in an organization. This comprehensive course collection combines self-paced learning with face-to-face instruction, in which group exercises and dialogue activate and enhance tacit knowledge gained online.
With a unique spin on a "Train the Trainer" approach, course materials include a detailed Instructor Guide so that a qualified trainer from your own company can facilitate the in-class learning portion of the course. Also included are Participant Workbooks, case studies, exercises and solutions, PowerPoint decks and other supplemental materials.
One of the many benefits of this course collection is that one of your own people can lead a high-quality workshop without your company having to go through the lengthy - and risky - course development process. Your instructor is encouraged to make the course his or her own by incorporating personal examples and experiences relevant to your company’s business.
This course collection is comprised of two sections: the self-paced learning portion PM BASICS™ and the in-class learning portion, which is facilitated by your own qualified instructor.
Core knowledge is presented in the self-paced segment and then reinforced within the practical context of the in-class experience.
What is Blended Learning?
Blended learning streamlines the learning process by allocating each part of the process to the most effective media. For example, it is widely recognized that learning hard skills, definitions and basic concepts is accomplished most efficiently in a self-paced media, while deeper exploration and application are best done with a live instructor in a virtual or physical classroom setting.
After the class, the workbook becomes a resource to remind participants what they have learned and to use with applying the new knowledge and skills gained from attending the course. The workbook also includes a set of Exercises and Case Studies
