ProjectPro has released their landmark ProjectFlow® project management methodology which is available through attending the 4-day ProjectFlow® course.
This unique project management training course adopts a structured approach, based
on the Project Management Institute’s internationally recognised Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK Guide) 6th edition which creates a highly effective blend of a standardized approach and best-practice project experience. This ensures that the knowledge, skills, tools and techniques learned in the beginning of the course are immediately implemented in a real-world simulation for maximum understanding and retention
Each learner receives a CD containing the ProjectFlow® methodology which is based on the latest PMBOK Guide 6th edition. This methodology is used on the course to take the learners through the sequential flow of processes and documentation from Project Charter through all the phases to Project Close-out. Templates and sample documents are provided on the CD for ease of use and to maintain a consistent planning approach.
The first two days on the ProjectFlow® are spent exploring the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK Guide) 6th edition, i.e. the ten management areas of Scope, Time, Cost and Quality, Communication, Risk, Human Resources, Procurement, Stakeholders and Integration. The six processes/domains of Initiating, Planning, Executing, Monitoring & Controlling, Closing and Professional Responsibility are also explored.
Lateral thinking, brainstorming, videos, problem-solving exercises and teamwork ensure that the ProjectFlow® methodology is intertwined with the facilitation to boost flagging concentration and to shift the learning process into top gear.
On days three and four the teams must develop a major deliverable, namely a Project Management Plan. Using real -world tools such as notebook computers loaded with Microsoft Project, PowerPoint, Excel, Access, Word, the course is placed in the correct context. The techniques learned on the previous two days are applied to test the learner’s understanding thereof e.g. producing a scope statement, work breakdown structure, project organisational structure, risk analysis, responsibility assignment matrix, activity networks, critical path analysis, budget, earned value management, etc.
On day four the teams have an opportunity to prepare the presentation of their Project Management Plans. Each team member must present a portion of the project management plan. The facilitator gives feedback to the teams on the content of the Project Management Plan and the presentation thereof on the afternoon of day four.
Close-out and sundowners. Projects and courses must all come to an end. On the afternoon of day four the last deliverable for the ProjectFlow® learners is to produce a close-out report on the achievement of project objectives and to document the lessons learned.
Terry Deacon PMP, the course facilitator, draws on his decades of project management experience, to adapt the ProjectFlow® content to satisfy the needs of the delegates and their organisations. He is a Project Management Professional; a member of the South African Qualifications Authority’s Project Management Standards Generating Body and is a registered Project Management Assessor.
At the end-of-course function, after four days of intense effort, the delegates can at last relax and recall their experiences over well-deserved sundowners. Certificates of Achievement are awarded to learners on successful completion of the ProjectFlow®.
Each learner receives a copy of the PMBOK 6th Edition, a comprehensive course manual, a ProjectFlow®methodology CD, worksheets, ProjectPro T-shirt, team photo and a ProjectPro Certificate of Achievement. (lunch and refreshments included).
