Enterprise Project Management is pleased to offer you our proven Project Management training program that can take an individual entering into the Project Management (PM) discipline through a structured program one step at a time through to preparing the individual to write their PMI® PMP® certification exam (provided they meet all the requirements set out for certification on the PMI® web site.

EPM’s training approaches include “customized learning experiences”, which take a project that your organization is planning and using our off-the-shelf curriculum we work in the class with your employees to not only learn the principles and practices of project management but create deliverables to initiate the planning process for your project! The deliverables for your project would include development and clarification of the project scope, work breakdown structure, stakeholder management and risk plans that are specific to your project. This approach has been extremely successful with our clients locally and worldwide.

Participants can enter the program at their individual level.

Project Life Cycle

Projects R Us

Through our sister company, we have developed the Project Life Cycle tool ($53.45), which will help you understand the key steps through each stage of the project management life cycle. It has been developed based on best practice and is currently being used by many small and mid-size organizations. It can be adapted to fit your organizational processes and approval points.

For each stage of the project life cycle, we have included all the necessary templates to manage through your project effectively. These tools and templates have been developed through years of experience. All of the templates are easy to use, flexible and effective in presenting the right information to the right people for your projects designed to keep your projects on track.

Not Just Another Consulting and Training Company

Enterprise Project Management Ltd (EPM) is dedicated to assisting to create professionals that can put their learning to practice. Our consultants and facilitators work in the field and provide first-hand experience to the values and influence of Project Management in the actual work place.

You can purchase project management training from anyone.  However, can your training provider demonstrate that you are actually learning?  EPM provides training and learning supplemented with its PM Tool Kit which will enable you to put into practice immediately what you have learned from a course.

Our Facilitators are certified PMP professionals who continue to upgrade their skills and practices through local and international assignments.  These assignments bring current and real world experiences to each class room.

EPM has developed its Project Management Training Program to provide opportunity to build knowledge through all levels of Project Management up to the certification.

Customized Workshops/Training

EPM has designed, customized and delivered project management training to many clients leveraging the off-the-shelf material to build and integrate components of the clients business to increase the learning value for the participants.   This has been accomplished by including client business practices, templates and tools; using a real project to run through the course material and provide initial tangible project deliverables; or by creating case studies that reflect the nature of projects being managed in the organization.

The feedback we have received from using these approaches in our courses has been excellent.   The participants learn more by doing something that is familiar to them and they also have a head start on the project set up of objectives, stakeholder management plan, risk management plans and communications plans when using a “real life” project vs. a standardized case study and exercises.

Design/Development/Customization

In order to determine the best options for the Client, our approach to Development/Customization follows the process below:

  • Meet the Client staff to determine requirements/issues/needs
  • Make recommendations to the client
  • Customization of courses/ workshops:
    • Identify learning objectives
    • Identify and agree on topics to support objectives
    • Draft course/workshop overview
    • Agree on overview
    • Draft the material (either content or case study/exercises)
    • Review to ensure requirements meet expectations
    • Approve edits/changes
    • Final updates – content, exercises, case study, tools, processes
    • Material production, branding if required
    • Schedule event – implementation timelines will be agreed to between the Client and EPM
    • Conduct evaluation of sessions and provide back to the client for all sessions or classes
    • Meet with client to define any fine tuning or incorporate feedback from sessions for future sessions

Enterprise Project Management conducts evaluations for every course or workshop and provides the feedback to the client upon completion of the event. To keep design and development costs to a minimum we often recommend using the EPM existing course content from our off-the-shelf courses as a starting point. As noted above with some minor revisions we have had excellent results with participants taking away valuable knowledge and skills to apply on the job.

In order to provide a Client look and feel to the course material, EPM can include client specific logo’s, materials, processes and templates to the program material. It is our experience that by providing this organizational content the programs become more relevant and applicable to the participants. This may include customized case studies.

All of our course content has an emphasis on practical skills, knowledge and tools which can be applied immediately to day to day roles within an organization and includes discussions, interactions and practical exercises to work through the project management processes in a logical fashion which allows participants to experience learning that is relevant to the work they perform and engages them to apply the learning on the job.
