Project Management FundamentalsBusiness & Management in Chelmsford, MA

Training Course Details

We offer a 2-day action-learning course of instruction led by a Certified facilitator in a formal classroom environment. It is designed to provide personnel with a broad understanding of the project management principles, concepts, tools and techniques applied across the organization, along with the global standards from which they are derived.

The primary objectives of this course are to 1) empower personnel with the vocabulary, knowledge competencies and basic performance competencies necessary to intuitively understand and function at a high level in their supporting roles and 2) to organize and execute their own day-to-day work in a more efficient manner using modern management concepts and methods.

Project Management Fundamentals employs effective accelerated adult learning techniques (addressing visual, auditory and kinesthetic learning styles) to ensure each student succeeds at a high level. The 2-day agenda is action-oriented and fast-paced, allowing students to learn-by-doing in a simulated environment. Course exercises begin on the morning of day-1 with students organized in simulated Teams initiating a hands-on project. The course proceeds with student IPTs planning, executing, monitoring/controlling, then formally closing the project. The last exercise at the end of day 2 requires each student IPT to prepare and present their final lessons learned.

The simulated project involves the planning and construction of a fictitious United Nations ‘SSRV’ prototype vehicle (actually a scale model comprised of approximately 200 pieces). The planning team achieving the highest profit wins a $1B contract to manufacture the UN’s inaugural fleet of SSRV vehicles.


All personnel whose work directly or indirectly supports projects and all personnel who can improve the efficiency of their day-to-day work by applying modern management concepts and methods.
