Utilising the PMBOK methodology, a globally accepted standard for managing projects, this Project Management training course in New Zealand will give you an overview of the entire project management process, as well as key project management tools that can be used every day.

The importance of delivering business results to specification, on time and within budget is critical to the success of any project, and that is exactly what project management skills enable you to do - even if it is not officially called a 'project'. The ability to successfully manage projects from beginning to end, no matter their size, is a highly desirable skill in today’s workplace.

Learn key skills like preparing required PM-related documentation, scheduling and estimating, create risk management and communication plans, use Gantt and RACI charts to plot project progress and much more. 

This dynamic training course is available now throughout New Zealand, including Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch.

Foreword:

In the past few decades, organisations in New Zealand have discovered something incredible; the principles that have been used to create enormous successes in large projects can be applied to projects of any size. As a result, many employees are now expected to understand project management techniques and how to apply them to both large and small projects.

The project manager's role is arguably the most challenging of roles within the project team. As the project progresses through its various life cycle stages, project managers must be able to adapt themselves to the changing demands of the project and the team.

Effective and efficient Project Managers will ensure project success by using good planning and execution to help organisations and individuals exceed stakeholder expectations. This workshop will give participants an overview of the entire project management process, as well as introducing and explaining the key project management tools that can be used every day.

In-House Training We’ll focus on what matters most to you and tailor to your context


Live Online or Hybrid Class Tailored to Your Needs

When you want a tailored learning experience targeting exactly what you want without bringing everyone physically together, the best choice is a Live Online Class run by PDT.

We tailor the content and activities to be specific to your current needs and the needs of the people and run the course in our usual activity-based workshop style training, however, the participants can all be offsite, or some can be in the room with others offsite.

Unless you have a preferred tools we use 'Zoom for Education' that includes enhanced collaboration features such as One-click content sharing, real-time co-annotation (people can work together in activity files), and digital whiteboarding, we also include things like live polls and group chats so you virtually have the same collaborative learning experience of attending a course in a room with other people.

live online & hybrid

We have delivered these 100's (if not 1000's) of times, and get great outcomes. We achieve great outcomes because we keep our learner centric approach - just because it’s delivered through a screen to some or all participants doesn’t mean it needs to be less tailored or less personalised.

You still have an expert trainer who talks to you prior to the session and tailors the delivery to use your terminology, ensure activities are relevant and directly applicable and ensures an engaging learning experience that provide people with skills and techniques they can apply the very next day.

A hybrid class is with some people dialling in, and some people physically together in the same room.
