Skills training programmes
Invest in your teams through effective Skills training programmes. The following courses are all geared up to skilling people to be able to contribute effectively.
- Project and Programme Management – Project Management is probably the core skill for all managers in the 21st century. Nothing is more frustrating than for an organisation to generate loads of great ideas and innovations for them to fail to be implemented effectively due to poor project management! This is not only dispiriting but also massively inefficient. Our Fast Track approach to project management gives people the basic skills to be able to Design, Plan, Implement and Review all projects – irrespective of the content of the project itself.
- Managing NPD projects – New Product Development (NPD) projects are the mainstay of innovative companies its, but managing them requires a degree of flexibility in the project management skills required. Many NPD projects don’t actually end up where they intended but they still added value to the business. A good manager should have the flexibility to realise that a project ‘going off-piste’ might not be a bad thing after all!
- Risk Management in projects – Balancing Risk and Reward is what it’s all about in corporate terms. What are we going to get from our investment in time, money, effort – blood, sweat and tears? Risk Management training is about understanding what “Risk” is as a concept and how we try and plan for it in projects and create contingencies to ensure that risks occurring don’t totally destroy the value of our projects.
- Problem Solving and Root Cause Analysis – how to problem solving and get to the source of business ‘problems’. This is the essence of this programme. Getting to the nub of a problem and sorting out the ‘wheat from the chaff’ amongst all the distractions of everyday business is what marks out an effective manager today. Our course shows you some techniques for improving your management skills.
