Project-based Workshops

Few projects finish on budget, on time, delivering results expected by customers. Yet there is no shortage of industry best practices from which to learn. What is missing from most organizations is a tailored version of those best practices, tuned to the culture, embedded in the skills of the people, supported by appropriate technology. Only when all elements of people, process, and technology come together can projects be executed effectively and efficiently.

Project-based Learning Approach

Project-based learning enables workshop participants to use their projects as the “case study,” learning how to directly apply course concepts and techniques to their work with the aid of experienced instructor-consultants. For example, in the Project Management Fundamentals workshop, participants develop parts of their project plans and associated work products. In a Use Case Workshop, participants develop use cases for a project on which they are currently working. Upon finishing each course, participants are well-equipped to complete the work expected of them using their organization’s project life cycle.

Pendére works with each client to determine what type of training is needed.  Using our wide range of courses to cover core and advanced concepts of project management, we develop tailored workshops that are adapted to an organization’s unique needs.  We structure a training plan to prioritize the areas for improvement and promote organizational maturity.  The table below lists our offerings, with the number of days indicated to the right of each course (in its standard format). Each course is eligible for continuing education unit (CEU) credit, for professional development unit (PDU) credit, and for continuing development unit (CDU) credit.
