AITP’s first ELS training class for helping Project Managers and Tech Managers & Staff improve the execution of business initiatives was a great success. The 5 full day workshops used collaborative exercises to drive home the skills needed. And, each participant left with an extensive set of tools that can be used in real world situations.
As an unexpected bonus, the sessions were especially valuable for new managers and senior professionals getting ready for management roles by:
- Helping them shift their primary focus from “doing” to “leading and managing”
- Providing the skills needed for mentoring and team building
Everyone liked holding the 5 full-day workshops every other week so they had time to apply learnings between sessions and appreciated the participation of CIOs and Senior Executives as panelists and mentors. Two of the firms enrolled Project Manager/Tech pairs to leverage the benefits of working together in class for upcoming projects. PMPs can get 30 PDUs for attending the class.
