Project Management Training

How to manage a project (and how not to)

Project management is both one of the most important and the least well-defined roles in an organisation.

Good project management makes a huge difference to a business – it can reduce costs, increase efficiency, improve cross company communication and contribute to the overall productivity and health of your organisation. And as we’ve probably all experienced, bad project management can do exactly the opposite.

Some people have ‘project manager’ in their job title; others may simply find themselves dealing with project management as part of a wider role.

Either way, robust project management training and up-to-date techniques can help improve performance – and make everything run that little bit more smoothly.

Cegos is a Project Management Institute (PMI®) registered education provider, and offers a range of ways to boost these vital skills.

We have project management training programmes for all levels, ranging from those aspiring to become project managers to those looking to build on their existing skills.

Our approach and our courses are aimed at those who need PMI®-approved expertise, but who may not need to pursue a PRINCE2 or similar certification.

Our project management training solutions can be face-to-face, blended or stand-alone e-learning programmes.

Our philosophy is to unify and simplify core project management best practice and methodology, to formalise a clients’ project management processes. To cut a long story short, we help people to find the best techniques for them, and to ensure that everyone is singing from the same hymn sheet.

By the end of our core project management training programmes, delegates will know how to:

  • Apply a consistent approach
  • Manage project resources and risks
  • Undertake regular reviews – spotting and controlling any deviations from the plan
  • Involve and manage stakeholders at the right time and place
  • Establish good communication channels both within the project and the rest of the organisation
  • Capture and share lessons learned

What our clients say about us – Nissan

We chose Cegos for its ability to provide guidance and support on aspects other than training expertise. This team of motivated, responsive professionals was able to satisfy our request for greater participant engagement and attentiveness, using a fun but effective approach to training.

We decided to set up the Purchasing University to build our function's professional skills and develop a common set of standards and tools. We chose Cegos to be our partner in this initiative, which gives us the added advantage of being able to design new training modules to meet the demands of a fast-moving international market.

What our clients say about us – Sun Chemical

Working in partnership with Cegos allowed us to bring about a real change in attitude to value selling across the group. The training they provided was a real eye-opener for many of the staff, and supported a company wide drive to build better long-term customer relationships.

What our clients say about us – Berendsen

We had already put in place LEAD Development Centres for our senior leader group, and it was very important to introduce Centres that would work for our large population of Plant Managers across Europe. Cegos have been excellent partners in helping us get the design right, and then in the delivery of lively, action learning based programmes. I have greatly enjoyed seeing our managers have ‘light bulb’ moments!
