Not Your Average Project Management Course

How can you guarantee success in the transient world of project management?

What is project management?

We like the project management definition provided by the Project Management Institute. PMI starts by defining a project as a temporary group activity designed to produce a unique product, service or result. Therefore, project management is the application of knowledge, skills and techniques to execute those projects more effectively and more efficiently.

At Management 3.0, we believe the project, of course, matters, but the team behind the project is what you have to focus on in order to find success. When your team is adequately organized and intrinsically motivated, projects are statistically more likely to be delivered on time and at the quality your clients come to expect.

Who is a project manager?

Yes, a project management professional is a specific (and usually poorly defined) role, but, at Management 3.0 we firmly believe that anyone – no matter how high or low on that silly corporate totem pole – can affect project management. That means, if you are reading this, you have the capability to affect change management in the project management of your organization.

What are project management challenges?

By sheer definition, the challenge of applying project management skills is that each project is transient, unique and unpredictable in nature. You need solutions that adapt to changing environments and changing projects. You need flexibility. And you need project management training to help you do that, whether you are a PM novice or a senior project manager.

What kind of project management is learned at a Management 3.0 workshop?

Unlike other project management courses, at Management 3.0 workshops, we don’t just teach you project management methodologies, we have you get into action, test out these practices and use storytelling across sectors and hierarchies to find the best PM practices for you.

Workshops are adapted to your sector and your needs. Topics covered often include:

  • employee engagement
  • project management
  • intrinsic motivation vs. extrinsic motivation
  • organizational structures
  • complexity thinking
  • agile methodology
  • self organization
  • goal setting
  • competence development
  • how to delegate
  • team decision making
  • team collaboration and experimentation
  • change management
  • competence development
  • performance management vs. performance appraisal
  • rewards and recognition
  • compensation plans
  • story-telling and improvement dialogues
  • how to build trust within your team
  • how to offer personal coaching
  • how to reflect at end of project for optimal learning

Perhaps most importantly, while each Management 3.0 project management course is full of hands-on games and activities that you can use with your team right away, it also teaches you the Mojito Method which allows you to create your own special mix of ideas that is just right for your team.

At a Management 3.0 workshop, you’ll play games, like Delegation Poker, that make theoretical project management methodologies practical game plans for your team. Go ahead, try playing delegation poker today with your team to help you decide who does what. It clarifies roles while having fun!

WARNING: This workshop is not suitable for project managers who like yelling orders from behind their desks.

Does a one-day or two-day workshop qualify for PMI credits?

At Management 3.0, we are not a Registered Education Provider (REP) with the Project Management Institute, however, since we’re a training organization offering a course on project management, our project management course attendees will be able to claim the hours spent focusing on project management as Category B PDUs (professional development units.)

According to PMI, you can earn Category B PDUs:

  • By completing an academic course being offered by a university or college or;
  • By attending relevant educational courses offered by training organizations not registered with PMI. This may include training (or a webinar) offered by your employer, another professional or membership organization or a non-Registered Education Provider training organization.

One hour of instruction related to project management equals one PDU. According to our project management training experts, all topics taught at both workshops are considered relevant to project management and thus all hours qualify for PDUs – 16 hours for the Management 3.0 two-day course, eight hours for the one-day workshop. Since these two project management courses are complimentary, you could earn a total of 24 hours of PDUs.
