PostHeaderIcon Effective Project Management Education

How effective is your organization’s approach to project management skills development? Does it yield measurable, positive and sustainable change?

Change does not necessarily assure progress, but progress implacably requires change.

Education is essential to change, for education creates both new wants and the ability to satisfy them.

Henry Steele Commager

We should not equate education with training here – yet this often occurs. The most effective means of assuring progress in project management is a multi-faceted education approach that supplements training with strategies that not only embrace but emphasize:

  • Tailored coaching/mentoring
  • Regular (“push”) knowledge feeds
  • Practical (“pull”) resources, and
  • On-demand support.

Education does not equal training.
