Fundamentals of Project Management: Traditional / Predictive / Waterfall Approach to Projects (1-day, 2-day or 3-day options)
Some believe the “old” approach is outdated and no longer applicable. However, some industries and certain types of projects will always use the traditional / predictive approach due to the nature of the projects themselves.
Agile Approach to Project Management (1-day or 2-day options)
In this modern, fast-paced era of business, the traditional or “waterfall” approach to project management may not be the best approach. Agile project management has quickly become the go-to project management approach for a wide range of industries. According to the Project Management Institute (PMI®), more than 90% of organizations are using Agile to some degree. If your business is not using aspects of Agile, it will be soon.
Project Management for Non-Project Managers (1-day option)
This course is specifically developed for the non-project manager who needs to understand the basics of project management. A vast majority of the projects done within organizations are short term, small projects – otherwise known as “assignments.” This course is a fast paced, one-day course which will give you simple tools to swiftly develop an effective approach to your assignments. This is not ‘hard core’ project management, this is a ‘down-to-earth’ approach to make you more successful within your organization.
Hybrid Approach to Project Management (4-day option)
A pure Traditional / Predictive approach or a pure Agile approach to project management may not always be applicable. Most organizations benefit from utilizing a “blended” approach which leverages the best of both traditional / waterfall and Agile.
Executive / Sponsor courses
IPDI offers half day, 1-day or 2-day courses to assist executives and sponsors to support project teams more effectively. See separate course descriptions for additional information.
