The effective way to build your IT project management skills
IT projects are fast moving, require constant attention, and are expected to deliver a high return in a short time. Because of these realities, training in IT project management needs to be results-oriented, and not so much an intellectual, theoretical effort.
IT Project Management Across Industries
IT projects are ubiquitous across industries. For example, our IT PM training has been used in virtually every major industry, from energy to health care, chemicals and pharmaceuticals to banking and service organizations, manufacturing companies to service organizations. See a small sample of the major companies worldwide that use this training.
IT project management challenges have a lot of similarity across industries.
Approaches to IT PM Training
IT project management training is provided by some trainers, but more often than not, generic PM training - that is, training that is not specifically targeted to IT - is provided. In addition, much training is in a classroom or is lead by an instructor online, requiring the student to schedule around it. In addition, this requires students to take the training in large chunks, such as anywhere from 1 day up to 5 days.
The online IT project management training that we provide is designed and built by a team of seasoned professionals that typically have Masters degrees and PhDs in education and related fields, as well as Subject Matter Experts in IT Project Management, and as a result, our training consistently:
- Applies best practices
- Emphasizes adult learning principles
- Welcomes learner initiative
- Assumes no hand holding is needed
- Relates theories and principles to experiences
- Targets instruction to improve performance
- Facilitates mastery with optimal sequencing strategies
