training approach


If you're looking to improve delivery of your projects and want to up skill your project team, consider having training that's tailored to your organisation. 

Not only will your people receive high-impact training, they'll be able to plan and manage their projects with more precision and consistency; providing greater satisfaction for both your business and its customers. We won't reinvent the wheel however, as we customise existing best-practice training content and adapt it to match our client's projects and processes.

A multi-part training approach takes best-practice project planning skills and matches these to Microsoft Project functionality.  A combination of classroom and workshop delivery ensures skill retention whilst matching newly-acquired skills to your organisation's project processes.  Dependent upon the amount of customisation required, some chargeable course development would be expected.
