Real Stuff in Different Context
The most practical tools and methods are selected based on typical context for non-professional project managers.

On-site Instructions on Your Cases
Self-exercises under instructions are available, based on cases provided by the trainees, and the results can be applied in practice.

Both Hard Methods and Soft Skills
Project management is not only a technique, but also an art. Even project managers, including non-professional ones, need to focus on both “hard methods” and “soft skills”, in order to gurantee the expected results of projects.

Easy to Master Professional Knowledge
Professional project management courses are usually too complicated for non-professional project managers to understand and apply. This course is designed for trainees with general background knowledge, which is easy to understand and master.

  • Overcome the fear of difficulties in working, which are quite common: complicated theories, ambiguous goals,
    variable tasks, and personnel conflicts
  • Master project management and delivery methods, tools and skills through project case exercises and
    project practices
  • Be able to better understand others and be more proactive in supporting the delivery and
    implementation of other projects
