Why join the course?

We need better and faster project delivery

Most organisations rely on the effective planning and execution of projects, but the majority of projects fail in one or more aspects. Projects often face budget overruns, delays and quality issues while failing to deliver value to its sponsors.

It’s not easy to align and engage Project Teams

As professionals we are increasingly involved with large or small projects as part of our daily work. This is often stressful and difficult work that can have negative impact on our KPIs, careers, motivation and wellbeing.

In an environment that is more complex and fast changing than ever before the traditional approaches to project management like PRINCE 2 and PMP (“Waterfall” model) fail to deliver the speed and agility needed.We can’t stay competitive if we still run projects the same way as we did 10-15 years ago.

The commitment of project resources and teams often fizzle out and projects managers with no formal power over teams struggle to rally the required energy to deliver projects. The need to align and engage projects teams is more critical than ever.
