The course will address the needs of organisations and people involved in international collaborative funded projects. It includes all the essentials for the understanding of the EU projects environment such as the rights and obligations of EU funds beneficiaries and provides step-by-step guidance for the management of projects.
The training will equip participants with all the necessary knowledge, skills and reference sources to help them understand, tailor and effectively use the PM² Methodology for the coordination of multi-party project work, but also for the effective reporting and smooth communication with the Project Officers of the European Commission.
During this course, the Critical Success Factors (CSFs) of project management will be discussed and participants will understand how PM² addresses them. With the help of workshops and exercises, at the end of the course participants will be in a position to start implementing some of the PM² best practices which will increase the quality of their project management. After the training, participants will be in a position to more successfully coordinate collaborative projects and increase their success rates by implementing PM² in their proposals.
To deliver the expected learning objectives and training experience, a well-orchestrated mixture of synchronous and asynchronous learning methods will be used including lecture-type presentations, structured discussions, simulations and group work.
Finally, the extensive use of case studies will make the training as practical as possible. The workshops will be conducted both online and off-line, using carefully chosen open source collaborative tools.
The completion of the course entitles participants to pursue the PM² Basic Certification. At the end of the training participants receive the proof of training and a complimentary voucher (regular cost € 150) for the PM² Basic Certification.
