Why take a course in project management?


Project management training has come on in leaps and bounds over the past few years; and it naturally makes sense for anybody wishing to embark on a full-time career in the discipline to ensure they undertake a professional course in order to obtain a recognised and transferable qualification.

It is also of course imperative on those already engaged in project management to ensure they are up to speed with the latest professional tools. Completing a recognised course in project management is acknowledged as the most effective way to achieve this.

Yet it is not only current or would-be project managers who are benefitting from taking modern project management courses.

Almost anybody who finds themselves frequently engaged in the planning and execution of tasks designed to improve the ways in which their particular area, department or team operates, will find it a considerable advantage to be able to complete such tasks in as efficient, timely, and comprehensive a way as possible.

This is particularly so with the generic project management methods encapsulated in Prince 2 training, since these are designed to apply to any project or task, regardless of the particular field of expertise being addressed, or of the size of the task in question.

From the perspective of general career development, it is worth bearing in mind that the need to engage in such projects is becoming increasingly common, and is affecting more and more employees. This is largely owing to the constant pressures on businesses and organisations to try new avenues of growth and direction; and new ways in which to increase efficiencies.

In addition, many senior managers often say how much they value those who have undertaken project management training; particularly as a result of the latter’s ability to tackle all tasks immediately, and to focus on finding solutions to challenging and complex issues.

  1. Re: Project Management Training

    Being a project management trainer I would tend to agree with you; however I feel that going on a Prince 2 course is a bit of an overkill unless your organisation / function actually uses Prince2 on a daily basis!  Apart from the expense (time and money) Prince2 can paperwork and process heavy.  Prince 2 is also not generic – it is a specific and copyrighted process.

    Much better to think about a shorter (2 day) programme that gives you practical experience / tips / advice on how to effectivley plan projects
