What is a Project?

A project is loosely defined as an undertaking that is intended to create a unique result, service or product. Generally constrained by a number of variables including time, funding and deliverables, the overall agenda of a project is to create value. The responsibilities of project managers are unique because projects stand out from normal day to day business practices in that they are temporary in nature, unlike the permanent and repetitive world of functional business practices. It is this distinction that creates the need for a separate set of guidelines and specific, or tailored, project management training.  

Project Management Training Formats

Project management training in the US is widely varied, not simply in approach but also training platform, time commitment, and available qualifications and certifications. Training providers offer project management training in a broad range of formats including e-learning, in-house, and scheduled. Courses can be searched based on time commitments, and are available in a variety of depths, from brief updates on best practices, to multi-week project management master's programs. Likewise, not all project management training approaches are appropriate for all companies and projects. Before choosing a training course, make sure to pick the right approach for your project. Whether it's industry specific, designed to fit client needs, or a blended approach meant to suit numerous projects, it's important to choose wisely!

PRINCE2 Certification

PRINCE2 stands for Projects In Controlled Environments and is generally considered as being the primary approach to effective project management. As the name suggests, PRINCE2 is a highly structured approach to project management. Project management training providers offering courses in PRINCE2 will guide participants through how to organize project processes into a well-defined framework. By utilizing a clearly defined structure, the PRINCE2 approach puts project focus on outcomes, rather than individual project tasks.

Agile Project Management (APM) Training Courses

As the name infers, Agile is designed to be flexible, approaching the project as a set of individual small tasks completed in the manner that best suits the specific situation. Agile project management is most commonly utilized for projects related to web and software development, as well as marketing and creative projects. Our agile training will prepare you for the challenge of directly incorporating the client into the project development process.

Lean Project Management

This approach adapts the concepts of lean thinking into project management, the goal being to maximize value and minimize waste. Lean project management training prepares participants to support constant and continuous improvement within an organization, and this extends to projects. The lean project management philosophy is grounded upon reaching completion within the given constraints, whilst avoiding wastage of resources and time. Lean training providers offer a plethora of courses focused on teaching lean project management, whether as a singular approach or blended into other project management approaches.
