Course Description

Are you about to manage your first real-life project?

With some fear you are asking yourself:

  • What should I do to be successful?
  • How do I do it?
  • Where do I start?
  • How will I know when it's done?
  • How to ...

Every day, millions of people like you, work on their smaller or bigger projects, trying to make them successful. This course has been created for those, who want to implement projects effectively and efficiently - as project managers or leaders of task teams.

This course is for everyone, but it will be especially helpful to those, who are facing those challenges for the first time. 

That's why I decided to make this a very practical course.

There will be no scientific theories, boring lectures and hypotheses in this training that you will test on your own mistakes. You will receive practical and proven knowledge in the form of ready-to-use tools that allow you to quickly build an effective solution to your project challenges.

You will learn a practical approach to project management, i.e. what, as a leader or project manager, you can do to achieve success.

You will set a framework for your activities - mission, stakeholders, goals, scope, schedule, risk, communication, monitoring that will create a stable and predictable plan for you, your team and your boss (Project Sponsor).

You will also get ready-to-use templates and methods that will increase your chances of delivering the expected results by 90%.
