I manage a team of Project Management professionals who deliver a mix of IT and business change projects to internal customers. There are individuals within my department but outside of the project management team who I wish to train as junior project managers with a mix of theory and practical experience as part of a 1 year project manager training programme. The practical experience will be gained by working alongside existing project managers on real projects i.e. putting the theory into practise.
I require the development of a structured project management training programme that will assist me in developing individuals within my department into junior project management professionals. I wish this training to be based upon the PMI project management body of knowledge (PMBOK) and any other PMI standards that you feel appropriate.
I would like a set of material to be produced for the programme. The material produced should include (but not be limited to):
- Documentation that details the programme structure, learning objectives, how much time to be spent studying/working in each area etc
- Training/development documentation (based upon PMBOK)
- Documentation for the gathering of evidence to track an individuals learning and development.
In addition to this, I'm really keen to see in included your ideas for other elements that make up an effective training programme i.e. training seminars and workshops, lectures from internal experts in project management disciplines etc - anything at all that works!
I appreciate that this brief is fairly vague so I'm keen to hear from freelancers who have done this kind of thing before and can included experience of best practise in project management development.
In your response, please briefly outline how you would meet my requirements and how you would structure the programme. This detail is mandatory - if your response does not include this detail then I will not consider you for this project.
