Wanted - Project Management Course Or Software ?
Q: Wanted - Project Management Course or software ?
I need to find a PM training course of about 50 hours duration that can be
bought as a package, or used seat-by-seat for an organisation that has to
provide PM training to a client.
The course should contain a reasonable amount of practical content and lean
towards contract and large procurement management projects if possible (but
A:-Through my company Analytic Project Management(APM), I present a four-day course titled "Total Project Control: Theory & Management". In addition, I also teach it several times a year through the Project Management Institute's PMI Seminars 2000 and PMI Seminars 2001 series, as part of the "Core Competencies" track. You can read a detailed description of the course in the PMI Seminars 2001 brochure. The URL is: http://www.pmiseminars.org/seminars/descriptions/totalprojectcontrol/ It was the highest-rated seminar at the Pittsburgh Seminars series last year, and will be presented in 2001 at the PMI Seminars in San Diego, Toronto, and Minneapolis. And as APM is a PMI Registered Education Provider (R.E.P.), the seminar is worth 28 Professional Development Units toward PMP certification, whether taken through PMI Seminars 2001 or directly through APM. The course is based in the principles of PMI's Guide to the PMBOK, but incorporates the new techniques and metrics of the TPC methodology. You can check out the book and the review comments at: http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/stores/detail/-/books/0471328596... The course itself incorporates 12-15 hours of team-based case study planning and implementation, and is provided for up to 20 students. It teaches what I regard as the "core" of project management techniques. If you are also interested in the "soft skills" type training (negotiation, leadership, etc.), I can provide that through colleagues who specialize in such courses at Bentley College of Waltham, MA, where I teach. I myself have been teaching and implementing project management, and consulting on specific projects, for 13 years in applications that include aerospace, defense, medical device and pharmaceuticals, a range of product development, software and IT, and nuclear power outage management. I also teach workshops as part of the ProjectWorld Symposiums, and have published articles in both PMJ and PM Network. Neil, I can't help but notice that your email address is in the Emirates. Just to let you know, I will be in the Persian Gulf area in January, working with a client who was one of the attendees of the Seminar 2000 series in Pittsburgh. If you're interested (or, indeed, if anyone else in the newsgroup wants to contact me), contact me either by email or at 781-275-3425.
