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

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).

Catherine Mendham, Content Consultants
“Very practical, very useful. Gives confidence in knowing what is important and what is not. Mike is a very engaging speaker.”

“Excellent. Very useful. I have been able to identify what I do and relate theory and strategy to what I have learnt in project management.”

“This did what it said on the box – a great deal of practical ideas for planning and managing tasks, along with understanding of key principles for successful delivery”
Andrea Duncan, PDP Co-ordinator – University of Northampton
“One of the best seminars I’ve attended in the last 17 years. Enjoyable practical and useful.
I would highly recommend this course”

This course will open up real career options for you: new opportunities, new roles, new responsibilities, and the chance of a better salary.
“But more than that, I want you to avoid the three big mistakes,
that I see people like you making again and again.”
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.
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.
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.
This is right for you if you are serious about succeeding in your first significant Project .
