Project Management Skills

Training and Coaching

Over the last 20 years, the importance of project management has increased dramatically. Projects have developed into a completely natural and widespread instrument in everyday business life. At least basic project management skills are now an important basis.

Skills for "Ad-hoc" Project Managers

Project management is now not only carried out by people with the job title of project manager. Many people are faced with the challenge of managing projects at short notice and in addition to their actual task. However, there is usually not enough time for comprehensive project management training or even for certification in one of the major methodologies.

I am offering a compilation of focused elements that can be implemented at short notice, which start with the essential basics and allow for more in-depth knowledge over the course of the project. Accompanying individual or group coaching has proven particularly useful. The specific content of the training courses is adapted to the conditions and characteristics of your organization. We will build on your standards, especially in risk and quality management.

  • Training on project management basics
  • Special workshops to deepen individual topics
  • accompanying individual or group coaching.

Topic overview

At first glance, project management doesn't seem that difficult. But managing projects is a complex task involving expertise, different interests and leading teams. Without methods you are lost as a project manager. But methodological competence alone is not enough!

I offer you a focused offer for the challenges of project managers. These can be individual training, workshops, coaching, or even comprehensive learning architectures with different learning options.

Project management methods

Various approaches and methodologies have developed a wealth of helpful project management methods. My focus is on the management framework PRINCE2, the agile development approach SCRUM and the framework for hybrid projects SCRUMFRAME.

In consulting, training and coaching along the project life cycle, I am not afraid to use the methods of IPMA or PMI if it suits the project situation, the qualification goal and the environment of your organization.

Leadership in Projects

Project management is a management task. Whatever the buzzwords at the moment are "leadership as a service," "lateral leadership" or "servant leadership", for project managers, leadership without authority to issue instructions is a clear challenge. Leadership in projects is always permanent negotiation and communication.

  • Leading project teams
  • Team dynamics and team development
  • Communication skills
  • Conflict management

Stakeholder Enagagement

No project takes place in a vacuum, there are interfaces, interactions, tailwinds and headwinds. Stakeholders hidden behind thick curtains often decide more about the success of the project than the achievement of the substantive goals. We convey and develop methods and strategies to identify and involve the key stakeholders.

  • Stakeholder Analysis
  • Project Kommunication
  • Stakeholder Engagement

Understanding complexe Organizations

Projects always have to do with one or more organizations in which the individual projects are anchored. Just think of the classic - the tension of project and line. In order to be able to act, project managers need knowledge of how complex organizations work.

  • Structure, culture and working methods of organizations
  • Making use of the specifics of my organization
  • Change Management
