“Do you know that a career as a Project Manager is right for you...  
But you don't have all the skills you need to get you properly started.  
I know. 

That was me, once.”

Dr Mike Clayton, founder of OnlinePMCourses

So, what brings you here?

Are You Committed to Building a Project Management Career? But you feel like no-one has really understood your potential as a Project Manager?

... and now, every day that passes, you feel like you are missing more opportunities? 

Or are you faced with a Project Management challenge that is stretching you beyond anything you have taken on before now?

... and now you feel like you're fighting for control of the one Project that could be vital to your career?

Or do you need to improve the way you deliver your Projects to get more of them on schedule, on budget, and to the delight of your sponsors?

... and you feel like you're being judged unfairly. You need training and tools: not reminders and criticism?

I see this a lot...

It's not just you.

With the right training, you can take a massive leap forward in your knowedge, your skill level, and the results you can get.

But can your organization give you the training you need?

... and will they make it available to you, even if they can?

And, if you find the right training, will you be able to assimilate it and implement practical tips quickly and easily? A whole load of theory is all very well...

Comprehensive course getting into the necessary discipline

This course is a good start to ascending the project management ladder. It's a refreshing look at the theory behind Project Management and why to do it properly, rather than just doing the task.I'd recommend this to somebody starting on the road of PM or somebody that has been in the position and become lost. This is a comprehensive course getting into the necessary discipline. Not too much just enough to allow understanding and not get bored.

Second to none

You have have skilfully used analogies and mental pictures together with clear illustrations to explain tough managements concepts. I should congratulate you for the great effort you put to produce the quality course which I think is second to none.

Invest, invest invest!

The best thing about The Project Manager’s Skills Mastery Program is its logical structure. This goes all the way through from being given a project to project closure. What’s more you will be able to do it with your own projects which is the key to the way Mike Clayton has put it together.So, I say: 'Invest, invest invest!' You get nothing by not investing in yourself and the return on investment will be multiplied many times over.

Ron Rosenhead
Chief Executive, Project Agency

What Works Practically

Mike covers all the key topics a project manager needs to know in his Skills Mastery Program and it's clear throughout the course that Mike not only understands the theory, but also what works practically and offers tips, tricks and pitfalls to watch, that only an experienced practitioner knows. I would recommend this course to anyone looking to grasp the key concepts of good project management.

“Please don't make 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. There is a lot of good stuff on the web, for free. There is a lot on our website.

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.
