Project Management Training with Exciting Hands-On Experience

The “Project Management in Practice” seminar is a step-by-step process model, not a seminar in theoretical standards. On the contrary, you cover the material and then have an opportunity to try your own hand at applying what you have learned as you move to a more advanced level. The starting point is a generic project lifecycle, which consists of initiation, start, execution and completion.

Some theoretical principles, of course, also have to be covered in this seminar for beginners in Project Management. But the seminar goes far beyond this. Indeed, you also get to apply theory right away in a hands-on project. This is not only exciting but also a lot of fun.

Thus, your newly acquired knowledge is advanced right away, gains real practical relevance, and stays fresh in your mind.

What You Will Be Able to Do after the Seminar

After this practical project management seminar you will have the knowledge to define parameters for projects, define project orders, carry out project planning, manage project implementation, and bring a project to completion.

“We have intentionally invited employees from different hierarchical levels to the seminar – from project managers with team leadership tasks to project employees with growth potential. The project managers have learned that clear and unambiguous goals are incredibly important, the employees that a constructive ‘no’ is also possible if something threatens to get out of hand.”
