Project Management is growing exponentially. As the business world grows more competitive, organizations find it necessary to take on an increasing number of projects. With projects becoming more and more complex, the demand on the knowledge, skills and expertise of the project manager has increased correspondingly. Effective project management is how organizations streamline in order to improve productivity. As businesses are restructuring, project managers take on many responsibilities. Expertise in project management is therefore a source of security, prosperity and power.


This three-day highly interactive and hands-on executive program “Certified International Project Manager (CIPM)™” is a non-industry specific program, ensuring that you have an increased appreciation for project management issues across the board.  Projects most often fail not because a technical project plan is incorrect, but rather because of a breakdown in communications, team dynamics, project leadership issues and/or personal conflict issues. The highly interactive and hands-on program will provide you with a framework to increase personal abilities and skills on the soft side of project management. 


Designed for Project Management professionals, participants will learn to develop an integrated project plan including establishing project goals, scope, schedules, and budgets and translating them into successful action. You will be able to identify and negotiate for resources needed while avoiding resource allocation conflict. In addition, you will understand your role as project manager, how to lead and communicate to your team effectively, how to get the right people working together, and also how to get the commitment of the stake holders and project team members to be involved and committed in the project. You will also discover how to identify and mitigate against project risks to ensure successful project execution. Throughout the program, you will be heavily involved in the case studies discussion, drawn from actual case to maximize the learning benefits and also to help you leave with specific actions steps for resolving current and future challenges


At the end of the program and upon completion of the exam, you will receive the designation of Certified International Project Manager (CIPM)™ that you can use on your resume and business card. CIPM is certified by the International Academy of Project Management (IAPM), which is recognized in over 145 countries with over 200,000 members
