Project Management as a Business Discipline

The number of projects performed in a collaborative network of two or more companies is increasing.

As a customer, it is necessary to nurture a culture of "mission success first" and put completing over competing. As a contractor, profitability and liquidity must be maintained. Another objective is a delighted customer, who comes back for more project business.

Success in complex project supply networks (PSNs) requires project managers to apply new skills. Trained in Project Business Management, they navigate through a landscape of divergent interests, cultures, jurisdictions, and personalities in addition to the competencies needed for traditional (internal) project management.

Tapping into decades of practical experience, we provide classroom training and coaching on the job. We help project managers on various sides sides of the negotiation tables:

Adding Value with Project Management Certifications

Certification is a proven way to communicate professionalism and set stakeholder expectations.

For individuals, the hirability gets increased as prerequisites of recruiters are met and the focus of the job interview can be turned to the candidate's strengths.

For organizations selling project services and products, it gets easier to win good business, and the monetary value from the business is increased.

For organizations procuring project services and products, certified project managers signal the methodological firmness that is helpful to supervise and direct contractors and manage complex project supply networks (PSNs).

We have three of the most value-adding certifications in our training portfolio:

  • For experienced project managers:
    Project Management Professional (PMP), more
  • For project management beginners:
    Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM), more
  • For agile practitioners:

    Professional Scrum Master (PSM), more

To Be Agile or Not To Be Agile in My Project? How to Determine the Right Approach

When teaching people about Agile Project Management in general and sometimes Scrum in particular, the same questions keep popping up, and understandably so: “With so many approaches, practices, frameworks, methodologies out there and so many different projects and environments, how on Earth should I know which approaches make sense in which project, or a situation?"
