How to get training material on project management skills that you can instantly download and use

The delivery of project management skills training courses has changed so much in the past 20 years since we start Oak.

Before, it was much harder to get established.

It used to be that a handful of course providers were the only ones that would be operating in the marketplace. They would set the scene, virtually determine what content should be included, and even would be seen as “the only” best-in-class providers.

Nowadays, things are different. More and more business managers and training professionals are choosing to deliver their own successful training courses.

At Oak Innovation, we respect that your choice of practical and on-point training material on will impact on how you deliver a course, period.

So, to offer as much value as we can, we’re offering pre-written training material on project management skills that you can use to deliver your courses. Practical and easy-to-use course content is a win for your audience. And, a win for you as you don’t have to develop everything from scratch.

If you’re looking to grow the types of training courses you deliver, we’re also going one step further by detailing below how we would deliver this project management skills course to others.

Let’s take a moment to explore what you will get, and how best to deliver this material.

Target audience

This project-management skills training program is designed to help target the challenges faced by line-staff, human resource professionals, general managers, and senior executives that need to manage projects as part of their duties.

Learning objectives

If you are looking for content to present this type of course, this is the course material for you. And, you don’t have to be an experienced business trainer to get results like a pro.

At the end of this training course your participants will be able to:

– Identify the main obstacles

– Understand the project management process

– Understand a range of project management tools and techniques

– Build an effective project management process

– Explain the benefits of managing projects

Course overview

In our continued efforts to provide you with as much value as possible, we’re going to show you how we would use the content provided to deliver the key sections of this training course.

Defining a project – Project management skills are incredibly valuable. That’s because project management skills, in nearly every situation available, can help your audience meet and exceed the expectations of all customers and employers.

As project management skills need to be tangible, start the course by defining what a project is. If you want a fully engaged audience, use the material to examine the central characteristics of all successful projects. This awareness will ground your audience on the primary skills that are required.

Roles & responsibilities – Like any training course, there are areas like roles and responsibilities that are essential for success.

Use the content to discuss the following roles:

– Project team
– Team structure
– Project steering committee
– Sponsor
– Leader/manager
– Finance administrator
– Communication administrator
– Documentation administrator
– Schedule administrator
– Support systems administrator
– Quality administrator

Phases – When it comes to project management skills that drive results, there’s often some magic happening. Every situation has different options that require different solutions. Typically, most experts apply solutions that follow distinct phases. Use the content provided to explore the key phases of initiation with your audience.

It’s one thing to want to develop project management skills, but it’s another thing entirely actually to start using these skills. With the help of the content provided, explore planning tasks, and generating expert advice. Keep in mind the need to discuss tasks (the network diagram) and critical aspects like Critical Path and resources.

Perhaps one of the most important areas that your audience needs to understand is milestones. End this section by examining this crucial area.

The schedule – Practical content will keep your audience engaged with your delivery as the course progresses. You need to make sure that you offer personal experiences. Especially when you explore the project schedule. Consider adding a company or industry examples that will be memorable to your audience.

To improve learning, you need to reach out to your audience and use the content to share business-critical aspects like project budget, budget sections, and budget variance.

Planning & contingency – When it comes to planning, it makes sense to use the content to explore how to manage expectations, and how to check the plan. Use the content to share insights on crucial project management areas like execution and documentation.

Monitoring & controlling – Yes, we’ve all heard that strong project management skills require a lot more than just simply plans and schedules. After all, many experts will tell you of how project metrics and change control will help to achieve project closure.

When your audience is sitting there in front of you, you will need to convey the essential habits of monitoring and control. Use the content to make sure everything is meaningful for your audience.

Why some projects fail – None of us can control everything that happens in our lives. But, we can control how we talk about things and how we approach situations.

Rather than just believing that all projects succeed, experienced professionals take control by understanding that success and learning can emerge from failure.

To this end, use the material to discuss some of the reasons why some projects are not successful.

“The Oak materials have provided us with an enormously useful package that has expanded our capacity to address the needs of leaders and emerging leaders, especially in the field of education, where there is a shortage of training opportunities in the skills and techniques of leadership and management. I can report that I have used them in a re-developed format when coaching new and early-stage educational leaders as well as at a 2-day symposium for the same levels of leadership. The response from these people has been enthusiastic and grateful for the insights provided.”
