Is it Time for Your First Steps in
Project Management?

You are ready to take on managing your first Project

... but you don't know the language, the process, the tools, or the techniques.

Let's face it... If you're honest, you don't know where to start!

Dr Mike Clayton, Project Manager and Trainer
“You know you can succeed as a Project Manager.  
But you don't have the perspective to be confident to know how.  I know. I have been there.”

I see this a lot.

It's not just you.

You know that Project Management is largely the application of common sense. So you assumed it's easy. But now you're faced with it, you need the confidence to believe that your instincts are correct. And you'd like to understand the principle, have access to the tools, and be able to apply the processes that will can your project succeed. 

Your organization cannot or will not give you the training you need...

But it expects you to deliver your first Project with ease!

Help is at hand:

I have discovered how to explain Project Management quickly, in a clear, step-by-step way.

Over the last 10 years, more that 6,000 people have attended my three-hour live project management seminar.

“Excellent seminar. I have been on previous project management courses. This one seemed very different and much better due to brilliant examples Mike gave.”

Emma Oliver, Marketecture

Old-style Classroom Training

"I know this training well. I have made a great living doing it. But it can't reach enough people."

  • You had to wait until HR commissioned a Project Management course.
  • Or you had to travel a long way to attend a public course.
  • You had to give up one, two, or more days to do the course, getting way behind on your work.
  • And you had to take notes so you could remember everything in a month's time.

Our New-style Online Training

Project Manager's Fast Start Program

"This is the future: convenient, economical, and effective. it works for organizations, and it works for you."

  • You can get the training that you need, today.
  • You can take modules when and where you want.
  • You can fit your courses around your work, your family, and your social life.
  • And you can repeat any part of the course, when you need it, and as often as you like.

I spent twelve years as a full time Project Manager at Deloitte Consulting. While I was there, I led teams of between 3 and 80 consultants, delivering complex change projects for multinational, large national, and Governmental clients in the UK and Europe.

But I wasn't always a successful Project Manager. For two years, I was constantly chasing that first opportunity. All my boss would say is 'you can't manage a project, until you get some training.' But there was no training. So I couldn't make progress or demonstrate my ability. That's why basic Project Management skills training is so important to me.

I built two training businesses and have delivered live training to several thousand project managers, becoming a much in-demand trainer and speaker. My seminars frequently have audiences of 100 or more.

But with live training, I can only reach a small number of people. I want to make my training available to  more people. And especially to those who, like you, may not have access to live training. Your organization may not be able to, or choose to, commission it. Your bosses may not put you forward. You don't have the time. I wanted to create easy to use, low cost, Project Management training that will give you rapid results.

I have written 13 print books for publishers like Pearson, Wiley and Macmillan. These include best-sellers like How to Manage a Great Project, Brilliant Project Leader, and Powerhouse, along with specialised Project Management titles like Risk Happens! and The Influence Agenda (about stakeholder engagement).

“But more than that, I want you to avoid the three big mistakes,
that I see people like you making again and again.”

Mistake #1

Thinking that Project Management isn't for you. 
You aren't ready, it's too hard, there won't be any opportunities, or you need a live learning program to get started.

Nonsense: If you want it. If you need it. Go and get it.
Get it here, or get it somewhere else, but get it NOW!
If you don't, someone else will.

Mistake #2

Trying to cobble together your Project Management training on the cheap. 
Don't get me wrong, there is a lot of good stuff on the web, for free. There is a lot on our website. But too many people try to build a YouTube syllabus and get themselves totally confused and misled by conflicting advice, mismatched terminology, inconsistent approaches, and downright awful content.

Reality: If you want quality, you need to pay for it. The Time-Cost-Quality triangle is one of the core Project Management concepts (the module: Triple Constraint). If you want quality, and speed, you need to pay. If you want it cheap, you'll need to sacrifice either speed or quality... or both.

Mistake #3

Putting too much work into reinventing the Project Management wheel. 
A lot of Project Management is applied common sense. So you could figure it all out if you needed to. But it would take time, and you would doubtless make many more mistakes along the way.

Efficiency: Why waste your precious time figuring out detailed processes, creating useful tools, and learning valuable tips for yourself, when you can tap into many years of training, learning and experience.
