Projektmanagement Methoden


In this seminar you will learn practical methods that will make your work as a project manager noticeably easier. We help you to use a proven project management structure as well as to develop realistic project plans. In this way you learn to use your own time efficiently and to complete projects in a goal-oriented and timely manner. PS Consulting’s project concept has been used successfully for many years in numerous projects worldwide.


We work concretely and practice-oriented on your project. All theoretical inputs and presented methods are applied directly in workshops to the projects of the participants. While you work on your project plan in small groups during the course of the seminar, questions are discussed and answered immediately. This is how you ensure the transfer into your daily project work. This seminar is based on the internationally recognized standards of the Project Management Institute (PMI)®.
