Customization

The course description gives a good indication of what the training looks like. However, the content can differ per workout. These differences depend on any prior knowledge, practical experience and participant learning objectives. In preliminary individual intake interviews, the participant’s learning objectives are inventoried. On this basis, the final training program for the training is determined.

Training form

The project management training alternates theory with application discussions of own work situations and practical situations. This is where the presented theory is applied. The feedback to their own work situations is especially important, because the course participants are given the opportunity to immediately apply what they have learned in their own environment. The course material therefore has many practical overviews and checklists. Participants can use this material in addition to their own work.

The training is provided based on the Effective Agile Learning Method©
