Practical Project Management
Deliver projects with all of the rigour but less of the bureaucracyWatch Promo
Taking a PMP or PRINCE2 course, may give you a qualification, but it won't give you the tools or skills to start running successful projects straight away. Our course comes integrated with an eBook and a large number of ready made document and spreadsheet templates, together with email support and exclusive access to a closed Facebook group to allow you to share experiences with other users of this course.
We give you all of the tools you'll need to get on with delivery as soon as you've completed the course.
PMP and PRINCE2 are massive industrial scale project management methods and unless you are either in government or running a monster project, you don’t need this level of overhead and bureaucracy. Moreover they don't tell you how to run a project, just to manage it. The nuts and bolts of actually running a project are ignored.
Our course covers the whole project lifecycle from building a business case, cost and benefit estimation, risk assessment and monitoring and all of the good stuff you need to do for proper governance. It takes some of the best bits from PMP and PRINCE2 and combines this with practical advice gained from running lots of projects. Our approach is tried and trusted and works!
And this is more than a course, it's a practical toolkit for running a project that you can start using from day 1.
So forget that PMP or PRINCE2 course, learn a practical approach that will help you deliver projects rather than disappear in endless form filling, meetings and bureaucracy.
I’m a very experienced Programme and Project Manager who has worked for Banks, Insurance Companies, Consultancies and both big and small companies.
I'm author of Project Management for SMEs and it's US edition Project Management for SMBs and run PM Results a consultancy specialising in Project Management Advice
I’m a Prince 2 Practitioner and Professional Scrum Master who has run massive programmes of work and change departments as well as lots of small projects.
I’m passionate about what I do and how I believe things should be done.
I don’t believe that allowing yourself to be engulfed by the vast bureaucracy of big project management methodologies like PMP and Prince 2 is a practical way of running most projects
My vision is to spread the word for a very practical way of running projects, that gives control and lowers risk without bogging everyone down in too much bureaucracy. I know it works because I’ve lived it and breathed it and I believe we can make it work for your organisation too.
