If you ever wanted to understand the behind the scenes of Project Management, become a project manager, or bring your project management skills to the next level… then this course is for you.

My name is Ben, I have been a Project Manager for more than 20 years working for amongst others IBM, HP, large Financial companies and also Government agencies. I have also been coaching Project Managers for more than 10 years.

I have all the most respected Project Management certifications (PMP, Prince2, MSP, Agile Project Management) – and you know when I was doing those courses – I did not really enjoy them because when I did them, I was already a PM and what I was hearing was not usable and so remote from what happens out in the field… and I thought I can do better maybe – to bring this knowledge to people interested in Project Management.

So I have learned from it and wanted to make a course that would provide you with all you need to understand project management – both the theory and the practical/real life components. I also wanted to make it more palatable by including diagrams, templates, plenty of examples and some quizzes.

As part of this course, I also provide a framework to go beyond being just a standard project manager – to really ace it. A very concrete, step-by-step framework that if you follow – will really take you to the next level in project management, you would be out there with the best!

And finally, this course includes an introduction to the most common methodologies/standards in Project Management: PMP, Prince2, Waterfall, Agile.

Our Promise to You

By the end of this course, you will have learned how to become an effective Project Manager.
