  • The tools needed to succeed with Projects – which we dovetail into the existing Project Management Process in the client.
  • The People and Team skills needed to enable projects succeed, and

 Exercises & Case Studies:

These are designed to bring the modules to life and allow participants to practise new skills in a safe learning environment. In the past we have;

  • Used examples of good and bad projects within the client as examples for discussion
  • Developed work related case studies that highlight the issues typically faced by the client
  • Used fictitious case studies that are designed to highlight specific issues that may be more relevant to a future issue not yet experienced in the client, e.g. moving to a Global structure; merging new organisational entities together; having to work in a ‘virtual’ team etc.
  •  Most of the people and team skills have exercises and short role play challenges that bring the key learning point’s home to all participants.
