Training methods

Most of the training time is dedicated to practice project management methods. A smaller part is about transferring the necessary theoretical knowledge.

A complete project is planned in small groups. The example project is chosen by the participants. It may be a real project they are managing or going to manage. All best practice methods of project management are discussed, practiced and applied on the chosen project.

The training methods comprise primarily team work on the project, and a mix of individual exercises.

Finally all project management methods are summarized in a "recipe" how to get a realistic project management plan.
