Training is of no use unless trainees finish the event with greater skills than with which they started. Whilst academic education and training to examination level certainly has a purpose, training starts in the workplace.
If your organisation needs to develop skills in service management, planning or in process design and management, then we can provide a mentoring service to ensure that:
For example: if there is seen to be a need to develop capabilities in project estimating and planning, there are two main options (which could be combined) other than attending a standard training course.
- Skills are developed
- Skills are used
- Skills are appropriate for the environment in which they are to be used.
The same approach could be used to fill skills gaps and to improve processes in other areas, such as Problem Management or Service Level Management.
- Delegates can attend a one or two day training event. The event would cover the theory, as usual, but they would also be briefed beforehand to bring real project documentation from real (and preferably, completed) projects. The theory could then be applied in a controlled environment to the organisation's own documentation and processes and could be tested and demonstrated against real-world projects
- Alternatively (or as well) our consultant could visit your site to work with your project manager(s) and tailor a method for estimating and planning whilst working in your environment. We would also tailor and deliver simple tools to enable your project managers to continue to work to the same standards after the completion of the assignment.
We can provide experienced, highly skilled and fully accredited trainers to deliver training courses in many areas. The principal consultant, Derek Thornley, holds accreditaions from the APMG, the ISEB and Exin to deliver the following ITIL® courses:
