Agile PM Tailored Courses

It may be better for you to arrange Agile PM tailored training for a group of staff. If you have more than 5 delegates to train on a course it is likely to be more cost-effective. There are several benefits which can be achieved from this option including:

  • Training is at a venue of your choice (considerable cost savings can arise from using your own venue)
  • Delegates do not need to travel long distances or stay away from home
  • Training can be tailored to suit your company terminology, environment and culture
  • Dates can be arranged at your convenience
  • PMWEB can run any of its training courses at your own venue or somewhere close to your organization.
What are the costs?

PMWEB can provide you with a breakdown of costs for your course, including details of:

  • A “per delegate” fee for manuals, registration fees, exams
  • Daily trainer rate
  • Expenses – trainer accommodation and travel

As an example, assuming that a course is held at your venue in the UK, a 5-day Agile PM course for 8 delegates can work out as little as £500-£600 per delegate.  These costs will vary due to location.

We may sometimes be beaten on price but we will never be beaten on quality.

Please contact PMWEB for more information or a quotation for an Agile PM tailored training course.

Testimonials

Real comments from real customers….

Very well presented at a good pace with appropriate examples

— Andy A – MOD (2013)

A very well presented course, particularly appreciated taking into account previous providers

— Simon P – MOD (2013)

The competence and enthusiasm of the Instructor were key to a well delivered course….

— Peter C – MOD (2013)

I enjoyed the course enormously, the subject is fascinating and I was never bored and I do have a very low boredom threshold. Enjoyed John’s style and felt very engaged throughout.

— Tracey F – Royal London Group (2012)

Excellent – subject matter expert but with a very engaging tutorial style. I thoroughly enjoyed the content – brought a high level of understanding to project management.

— Steve Keohane (2012)

John knew PRINCE2 literally inside out and in my opinion a very positive influence on all attendees offering support and serious knowledge of the subject matter with just the right amount of humour to keep you continually interested thorughout the 4 days of training – already recommended the course to fellow commuters. Brilliant!!

Would definitely use John again…

— Anthony Brady – Head of Software Development at Capital & Regional – (2011)

John is able to bring extensive real world experience and blend this with detailed subject knowledge to achieve not only exam success for candidates but a better understanding of the subject also.

— Stephen Beattie – NHS (2011)

At the end of a recent ITIL foundation session which John led, I noted to my company’s training team that: “I have no reservations about recommending the course. It was led by a highly experienced trainer who had a very effective teaching style. He delivered great content which I can apply immediately”. Also, even though I had limited prior exposure to ITIL I also did excellently well in the certification exam. John did a brilliant job encouraging the course participants to internalize the concepts of ITIL, ensuring that the best practices were not merely taken at face value, but were challenged and compared with other practices and models.
The highest praise that I can give is perhaps that I ensured that a new service delivery manager who just joined my team was signed up for John’s course as soon as he accepted the role

— OPM A Ibitoye MBA (2012)

I recently had the pleasure of being trained by John. He clearly has a wealth of knowledge in project/program management. From the time I have spent with John, I have learnt a tremendous amount. He has the ability to keep his audience engaged and enthusiastic. John would be a asset to any organisation. I would recommend John to anyone, both as a trainer, and also a experienced project manager

— Paul O’Sullivan – RIM – (2011)

John trained me in Prince 2 Foundation and Practitioner. I would highly recommend him as a trainer, he provides, humour and expert knowledge of both the theory and practical examples from his work experience. He is a class act.

— Tony Gould – (2011)

John is a first rate trainer who focuses on real world issues to help clients achieve and implement project management skills and tools to achieve the result they want. In his commercial and consulting roles he has a highly developed business sense and the drive to maximise opportunities to deliver benefits. His knowledge is supported by and proven by his solid experience in delivering successful business change for many clients

— Charlie England, Operations Executive, Williams Lea – (2011)

I was recently trained by John Green and if anyone were to seek my advice about taking a PRINCE2 Foundation and Practitioner course, I would have no problem recommending John to them. John is clearly very knowledgeable about Project Management, both in principle and in real-life practice, and has a very direct approach to his delivery. He is intuitive enough to balance the right amount of information to keep a group’s attention, which for me made his training sessions very easy to follow and also engaging at each point. I particularly admired his patience and his ability to communicate with all class members, regardless of their varying professional backgrounds and levels. His very high student pass rate speaks for itself and I am happy to be one of those successes.

— Jay Ediriwira – (2010)

“I first met John when he was giving a Prince 2 course in Swindon. What struck me was his in-depth knowledge of Project Management. While satisfying all our needs to gain the qualification, which I did by the way, he was able to show us best practice in implementation. This was so very important as its really easy to make Prince fail as a methodology because you try and implement everything in the book. Later when I was requested to see if we could find anybody who was able to improve Project Management at one of our partners John was first on my list to call.

— Dave Brennan, Infrastructure Manager, Anadarko – (2010)

John was recently involved in a major re-architecting of my company’s infrastructure. Downtime wasn’t an option and John came up with creative solutions allowing the project to go to plan/budget. His expertise and ‘can-do approach’ was instrumental to the positive end result.

— Ragnar Eiriksson (2010)

Approachable, knowledgeable and friendly. Gained great rapport with the group. I would recommend PMWEB for your training needs

— Chris M – Head of R&D ECITB
