How will you Learn?
At Complete we design all our learning interventions with a focus on the practical application of tools, experimentation and rehearsal. You learn through action, activity, debate, feedback and experimentation.
What sets the Complete Project Manager apart is that our focus is not on the software and structure but on the critical leadership, influence and interpersonal skills required to deliver projects.
Bespoke case studies are written in consultation with your people to ensure that the real world is always kept in focus during the learning process.
We start with your in-house process and systems for managing projects and then work with you to identify the key skills and tools that will be needed for success in the culture of your business. This is further complimented by our on line diagnostic tool that provides an individual report that diagnoses the project management style, skills and approach so that every delegate knows how to play to their strengths as well as how to maximise their potential. Developed by the Complete team the Project Management Style Questionnaire (PMSQ) is available exclusively to Complete clients.
