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 .
This course is highly flexible, and can be taught
in almost any way you wish . 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; the trainer can even
devise a customized course schedule! Also
included are Participant Workbooks, case
studies, exercises and solutions, PowerPoint
decks, and other supplemental materials.
One of the many benefits of this
comprehensive 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
This course collection is comprised of two
sections: the self-paced learning portion (PM
FOUNDATION™ - see page 14) 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 .
