What is a Project?

A project is loosely defined as an undertaking intended to create a unique result, service or product. Generally constrained by a number of variables such as time, funding and deliverables, the overall agenda 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 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 by time commitment as well, and are available from brief updates on best practices, to multi-week project management master's programs. Likewise, not all PM approaches are appropriate for all 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.
