Recommended Project Management Training


Have been asked to provide some project management training for some staff.

The budget isn't huge (two or three few hundred pounds per person, although may be able to increase it) and I'm after some relatively low level stuff which is for new entrants to a role in which they manage small projects.

Am open to 'traditional' or 'e learning' based approaches so can anyone recommend a resource to provide this?

  1. Project Management
    A good starting point may be to use Microsoft Project. This requires a grounding in project management principles at the start of the course and can then be followed up by practical experience using the software. I have done Project management training this way and it has proved very successful. Lynda

  2. ‘Brain Friendly’ Project Management
    Nick, we’ve recently been incorporating some goal focussed Project Planning into the work we’ve been doing with BSkyB amoung others. I find the technique particularly useful as it is simple and seems to stimulate both the left and the right brain.

    If you’d like to find out more drop me a line.

    Best regards,

  3. Project Management E-Learning
    We have supplied our clients with online project management training courses from 5 different suppliers to date. These have ranged from 60 minutes study time to over 12 hours. Some have been accredited, some have not. If you would like to look at some samples, feel free to drop me a line.

  4. Try Project KickStart
    For introductory classes on the emerging competency requirement for project management, we have successfully used a software tool called “Project KickStart” by Experience in Software, Inc. @ http// The software is very intuitive, the authors are great to work with. It is well suited to classroom use, especially if the participants are expected to begin using basic project management and will leave with an inexpensive software CD.

  5. Online Project Management.
    Hi Nick,

    Let me begin by suggesting e-learning. The benefit is a 12 month licence to the training materials. Should there be a lead time before your students begin their first project, they can drop back into any topic to refresh their learning.

    Second, we are currently working on a white paper on ‘The Top 10 Project Management Skills’ to be included with our Proj. Mgt. courseware – this is only in draft form – but you are welcome to a copy to appraise yourself on the skills needed.

    Finally, I suggest your students have a project in mind when they begin their training – if they don’t, give them one. Project Management training needs a hook to hang it on. Believe me, it helps to make some sense of it all.

    eMail me for a copy of the white paper.

  6. Recommendation
    I recently attended a 2 day project management introduction course at based in Tottenham Court Road.

    It was highly interactive & used a variety of techniques. The results back at the office were astonishing.

    I would recommend face-to-face over e-learning in this context, as it allows you to role play, experiment, tailor the course to your experience & gives you the confidence to put it into practice when you return.

    Their open courses are above your budget, but it’s worth discussing custom courses with them.

  7. Project Management training on small budget
    We offer a selection of courses that would suit your purposes – Principles of Project Management 1,2 or 3 -day courses that are most cost effective if run on-site.
    Email me for more information.
