Why this course?

Projects are all around us and we participate in them nearly on a daily basis. However we also notice that not all projects succeed to the same level and indeed we know of many projects that fail? So what makes the difference between a successful project and a failed a project?

Other than inadequate resources, many projects fail because of lack of knowledge, understanding skill and competence to manage them successfully.

P2 Best Practice project methodology, the most widely used project methodology in the world seeks to bridge this gap and move the success of your projects to the next level.


What’s in it for you as an individual?

After P2 training you will be equipped to:

  • Learn how to manage projects or to work in a project environment using the most internationally recognised project management method.
  • Ensure that team members focus on the viability of the project in relation to its business case objectives – rather than simply seeing the completion of the project as an end in itself.
  • Promote consistency of project work and the ability to re-use project assets while facilitating staff mobility and reducing the impact of personnel changes/handovers.
  • Design plans and reports to meet the needs of each level in the project team and Project Board, improving communication and control.
  • Mitigate perceived problems and issues and focus on the viability of the project throughout.
  • Evaluate the project portfolio to bring clarity and allow improvements in reviewing projects.
  • Increase your personal value and earning potential, which is, at the end of the day, one of the most important reasons for why you work.


What’s in it for organisations?

P2 embodies established and proven best practice in project management. It is widely recognised and understood, providing a common language for all participants in a project.

P2 encourages formal recognition of responsibilities within a project and focuses on what a project is to deliver, why, when and for whom.

P2’s formal recognition of responsibilities within a project, together with its focus on what a project is to deliver (the why, when and for whom) provides your organisation’s projects with:

  • A common, consistent approach.
  • A controlled and organised start, middle and end.
  • Regular reviews of progress against plan and against the business case (flexible decision points).
  • Assurance that the project continues to have a business justification.
  • Flexible decision points.
  • Management control of any deviations from the plan.
  • The involvement of management and stakeholders at the right time and place during the project.
  • Good communication channels between the project, project management, and the rest of the organisation.
  • A means of capturing and sharing lessons learned.
  • A route to increasing the project management skills and competences of the organisation’s staff at all levels.
  • Increasing organisation’s value creation, success of projects and hence work satisfaction for those who work in projects.


Who should attend?

Working Project Professionals If you are already a project professional, one way to improve and enhance your knowledge, skills and competency in managing projects is to equip yourself with the latest Best Practice Methodology which means attending a P2 course. This is from Project Sponsors, Senior Managers and Project Managers, who should do both Foundation and Practitioner.

Unemployed Professionals In a world where having a degree may not be enough to secure you employment, having critical skills that are valued in the marketplace will give you an added edge for that job you highly desire. It also comes with an above average salary. Therefore attending a P2 course is a valuable investment in your future. For those in the Built Environment, Project Management knowledge and skills are not just an added advantage but the core of what happens in the industry, so if you don’t have it, you are in trouble. WalalaWasala!

Project Team Members  Whether you are a works inspector or a project administrator, it helps not only to do what your project manager requests you to do, but also to understand why he wants you to do it that way, and why it is important to the success of the project.

Projects are not a solo mission and the success of the project depends on each and every team member. So enhancing the capacity and capability of not only the project manager, but also the whole team will lead to increased productivity and project success, and of course enhances career skills for individual team members.

It is recommended that Project Team Members do the Foundation course and only proceed to Practitioner if they excel.

Graduate and Post-Graduate Students In the employment market place it is not enough to come and flash your A’s, saying this is how clever I am, basically showing what you know. More important is what you can do with what you know. P2  best practice methodology increases your value by enabling you to demonstrate not only what you know, but how you can translate what you know to real life . It moves you from marketing yourself using what you know, to what you can do with what you know, and that is more critical in securing you a job.
