Project Management Fundamentals Training

Project Management Best Practice

Course Overview

This 1-day course covers best practices in Project Management - those things that the best Project Managers and project teams consistently do, and avoid doing. You'll learn core concepts and terminology, and gain a practical understanding of why projects fail (and how to prevent it). The course is taught by our, PMI-Certified instructors and delivered via innovative activities designed to make concepts stick.

Why Beyond20

How We Teach

People learn differently, so we use a variety of methods to teach concepts throughout the course. In addition to exam preparation and practice quizzes, you'll engage in round-table discussions, group exercises, and games designed to give practical context to the concepts. We take this approach not only because it's more interesting and fun than simply memorizing vocabulary, but because it works.

All of our trainers are full-time Beyond20 staff

No temporary workers or subcontractors here. Our trainers are working consultants who implement best practice processes and tools when they're not in the classroom. You might say we practice what we preach. It's a great system, when you think about it - we're better consultants because we know these concepts inside and out, and we're better trainers because we get to put the theory into practice in the real world.

We don't just teach to the exam (though we certainly do that), we also give you practical and personalized tools you can take back to work.

We're a Registered Education Provider with PMI, so if you're PMP Certified, the course will earn you PDUs!

Industry-Leading Course Materials

All of our courseware is reviewed multiple times a year to ensure it's up to date, in line with best practice standards, and effective! We incorporate feedback from students to constantly improve our course books, in-class activities, and (sorry) homework. The goal is to provide you with the tools to not only get you through class and pass the exam, but also to have a reliable reference when you get back to the office.

All of our instructors are experienced practitioners with real world ITIL implementation expertise. (Real experience, too. Like, former-CIO-level experience.)

We're a US-based organization with offices in DC, Phoenix, and San Diego.
