The Transformational Project Manager New Class


Expand and complete your project management training with this new online class.  Explore problem-solving, personal tact and diplomacy, interpersonal relations, coaching and integrity in decision making.  Excellent choice for profesionals working in a global company or on multi-disciplinary teams.


Perhaps the greatest risk to project management success are soft skills, specifically: diplomatic and problem-solving abilities, transforming "problem" staff members into effective collaborators and ensuring accountability, responsibility, honesty and respect from top to bottom throughout a project lifecycle.

This course arms participants with four effective "soft skill" tools: tact and diplomacy, basic coaching, problem solving strategies and Integrity Centered Decision Making (TM)(ICDM), a tool that empowers project managers and increases their chances for overall success.

It is designed for professionals working in a global company or on multi-disciplinary teams: Project Managers and Business Analysts, Business and IT Managers, Programmers, System Analyists and Project Support Managers.  It is also a perfect complement to the PM Certificate: Online Track, and rounds out training for Project Managers of all levels.
