Project management – it is the right mix of competencies that matters.
Project managers are temporary leaders. They must consider manifold functional areas, processes, stakeholders and environmental factors. Thereby they rarely have managerial power such as line managers.

To convince project team members and stakeholders of the chosen path project managers require:

  • professional and industry-specific know-how to assess project results
  • tools and techniques to initiate, plan, execute, monitor, control and close projects professionally
  • personal, social and emotional competencies to lead project teams and manage stakeholders, such as:
    • motivating and assessing team members
    • active listening and cool-headed action when resolving functional problems and interpersonal conflicts
    • moderating and steering meetings and workshops
    • communicating with stakeholders and presenting in front of steering committees and top management
    • negotiating with clients and vendors
    • establishing and cultivating a constructive and goal-oriented climate

Excellent project managers will not rely on their existing strengths; they will apply them in proper doses and simultaneously will analyze and improve their weaknesses – by using competent support.

Always „up to date“ and close to know-how

We have broad and deep knowledge of professional project management standards, methods and tools – and we know how to adapt them to organizations and to apply them effectively in projects.

For our seminar attendees we always assemble the best and most pragmatic solution – from traditional project management (PMI®, Prince2®, GPM®/IPMA®, DIN/ISO); from agile environment (Scrum, Kanban, XP, Design Thinking, Lean Management). On demand we lean on existing training concepts of our clients and optimize and complement them.

Beyond that, we continuously educate ourselves in soft skills, cultivate exchange with clients, partners and associations and take over an important role as instructors.

There will be no boredom in our trainings

“The seminar’s training content could better have been studied in a textbook!”

We are proud of never having received a feedback like that from our several hundreds of attendees.

We give careful thought that our trainings are inspiring and interesting and that each participant can take home remaining impressions, established knowledge and tips for practicing in the own organisation:

  • While organising a training we request attendees’ professional, methodical and personal focal points and preferences. Considering their feedback we always try to assemble a balanced group of participants to enable comfortable feeling and exchange.
  • We perform each training as a project – from the very first minute the participants learn how real projects work. It starts with getting to know each other, determining goals and rules of collaboration; continues with teamwork and simulated project situations. Results will be reflected in retrospectives and feedback sessions.
  • Learn experience-driven via several channels: Our integrated educational concepts provide a balanced mix of upfront teaching and learning by practice. We apply auditive, visual and haptic techniques with a large portion of interaction (e.g. management games, project simulations, PM-quizzes, discussion groups, organisation constellations).
