Project Management Fundamentals

Proved methods and techniques for your project success

You want your projects to run more quickly and smoothly – with considerably less stress, frustration and time pressure? The question is: What can you do about it?

Seminar Objectives

In our seminar you will learn pragmatic, professional methods which will tangibly ease your work as project leader. We help you as a project leader to achieve enhanced internal assurance, to use your time more efficiently, to replace chaos with structure, to stick to plans more effectively and to gain the recognition that you deserve for your project work. This will enable you to complete projects within the given time and budget, and in accordance with quality specifications. PS Consulting’s project concept has been implemented for many years with great success in thousands of projects – including international ones.

Your Benefit

We work concretely on your project and not on general case studies. All theoretical inputs and methods presented are immediately applied in workshops to the project that you have brought with you. Whilst working on your project in small groups within the scope of the seminar, it is possible to discuss and solve questions and problems immediately. This enables us to ensure an optimal transfer to everyday work on your project. Back at your desk, you will be able to start work right away, effectively and with entirely new impulses. This seminar is based on the internationally recognized standards of the Project Management Institute (PMI)®. Participants will be awarded with 24 PDUs.
