Hybrid Approach to Project Management Training Course

As every great tradesperson and chef knows, the more tools you know how to use, the better your creations. Same is true for great project managers.

4 onsite days (28 hours) or 8 virtual sessions (3.5 hours each) | 28 contact hours (PDU’s)


Each project is unique, which means the approach to each project needs to be unique as well.  That requires today’s project managers to be versatile in as many tools and techniques as possible.

A pure Traditional / Predictive / Waterfall approach or a pure Agile / Iterative approach to project management may not be applicable in every situation.  What most organizations benefit from is a “blended” approach leveraging the best of both Traditional / Predictive / Waterfall and Agile / Iterative.  In this course, you will learn how to use the best of both worlds to obtain incrementally better results.

This course utilizes many of the templates found in IPDI Project Management Template Library. You will have free access to this rich resource to use on your own projects.

You will be able to use the concepts learned the very next day on your projects, thus giving you the edge over your competition and an immediate return on your investment.  All our workshop courses are interactive, including small group exercises, large group discussions, and instructor facilitation.
