Project management means achieving ambitious goals with interdisciplinary teams in limited time and at defined costs. All project participants (project managers, project staff, experts) must understand how projects are correctly initialized, planned, implemented and successfully completed.

You will get an overview of proven process models and essential methods with focus on traditional and hybrid project management.

Our recommendation

For further consolidation after this seminar, we recommend attending the seminars "Leadership and Team" and "Agile Project Management".

IPMA Certification

The internationally recognized certifications in project management according to the IPMA® guidelines demonstrate mastery of the three competence areas of practices, people and perspective. The attendance of the two seminars "Methodology and Tools" and "Leadership and Team" provides an ideal basis for successful certification according to the current IPMA Individual Competence Baseline (ICB4). The Book "Project Management Handbook", Springerverlag, used in the training, deals with all aspects of IPMA certification.

The selection and immersion of the topics in the seminar is based on the requirements of IPMA®.

Project management means reaching demanding goals in limited time and with defined costs with interdisciplinary teams. All project participants (project staff, experts, project leaders) need to understand how projects are properly initialized, planned, executed and successfully completed. In addition to the classic and agile project handling, the hybrid form is increasingly being used. You will get an overview of these process models and essential methods.
