How it works

Perfectly Tailored to Your Organisation’s Unique PPM Maturity and Goals

Our custom courses are classroom based and focus on practical tools & techniques delegates can apply immediately. We encourage delegates to use their own projects for the practical exercises. Delegates often finish with lots of great outputs for their own real live project, including; a high level plan, project risk assessment, team chart, RACI matrix, stakeholder mapping & a communications plan.

Training is based on industry best practice as defined by the Chartered Body for Project Management, the Association for Project Management. Our courses become your courses, branded for your organisation and supporting your PPM methodology, governance and ways of working. Our courses are often incorporated into client L&D training catalogues.

PPM Methodology & Governance Development

Every organisation must have a defined, practical approach to capturing, approving, planning, managing and closing projects. This approach should be scaled to reflect the size, importance, risk and benefit of each initiative.

The success of a Methodology is driven by its adoption. We work in partnership with you, developing your Project, Portfolio and Work Management solutions. Typically we create customised training courses as part of successful adoption.
