Workshops for Professional Development

ISO Standards

We take the following ISO standards, which are broad-based and theoretical, and adapt them to our participants’ professional needs by using real-world examples and case studies. We have found this method to help the students better understand and effectively use the standards since ISO provides a guideline and does not provide detailed instructions for their application, nor are case studies or projects included.

  • ISO 9000 Family – Quality ManagementThis 4-day course covers the ISO 9000 Series, which encompasses the development of a quality management system, implementing the quality management system, and the guidelines for enhancing an organizations’ ability to achieve and maintain sustained success. The quality management system is typically contained in the quality management plan, which will lay out a roadmap for achieving quality objectives, develop quality checklists, create a quality training program for staff, and, of particular interest, develop the audit processes, which include proper documentation, organizing the audit material, and preparing for the actual audit as either the auditor and the audited.
  • ISO 14000 Family – Environmental Management – This 3-day course covers this standard as a framework for organizations required to systemize and improve their environmental management efforts. And although it does not provide nor detail out, the environmental management system (EMS) required within this standard. It does provide a checklist for developing such a system. Therefore, our trainers, who are certified and possess extensive environmental sustainability experience, assist the students in creating an actual EMS.
  • ISO/IEC 27001 Information Security Management – This 3-day course covers the methodology provided in this standard as well as the trainer’s experience in the field of preparing a Security Management System (SMS), which is critical for any company to protect client and staff data, intellectual property and other sensitive information. Additionally, when properly applied and incorporated into a security management plan, this standard will satisfy the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which is an essential part of any company working within the EU.
  • ISO 31000 Risk Management – This 3-day course is a must for any person working directly in project management and product development. The purpose of this standard is to assist companies in developing their specific Risk Management Plan, which is essential for running a business, running programs and projects, and addressing other risks inherent in any transaction. The course will teach participants how and where to identify risks, both positive (opportunities) and negative (threats), qualify (score) and quantify (currency) them, prepare appropriate responses, as well as determine how best to monitor risk control effectively.
  • ISO 37101 Sustainable Development in Communities – This 4-day course covers the ISO standard itself and the ancillary processes and guidelines needed to develop for sustainable development in communities effectively. The ISO standard itself provides an outline and a checklist of tasks and procedures required to create and deploy a plan for sustainable development effectively. Still, it lacks real-world examples and applications, which are crucial in effectively understanding the standard’s intent. To that end, we assist participants in interpreting and implementing the standard through actual case studies.

Project Management

  • Agile and Scrum Foundations – This is a two-day class geared towards flexible projects with quick turnaround demands, such as IT and R&D, where the requirements and solutions evolve through collaboration among cross-functional teams. It is geared towards fast-changing project requirements, which will lead to improved quality control, greater efficiencies reduced waste, and cost savings.
  • Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM) Exam Preparation Course  – This 3-day workshop satisfies the 23 contact hours required by the Project Management Institute (PMI) to apply for the exam. Just as with the PMP Exam, this course is based on the Project Management Book of Knowledge (PMBOK) 6th edition, but our trainers use real-world experience and customized case studies to understand the material better. In other words, we incorporate both the theoretical and practical sides of project management into all our training. To that end, all our workshops include study materials required to learn and understand the 49 processes, inputs-tools & techniques-outputs (ITTO), process groups, and knowledge areas.
  • Change Management – Preparing, equipping, and supporting individuals to adopt a change to drive organizational success and outcomes successfully. This 2-day course offers a hands-on environment for Program and Project Managers to further their professional development in Change management is one of the main concerns for all types of businesses today. And not because change is seen as something complicated, which it sometimes is, but because so much change in project work occurs unchecked and unauthorized, which leads to cost overruns, schedule delays, and, in some cases, claims which can be costly and affect client-consultant relationships. 
  • PMI-ACP Exam Preparation Course – This 3-day course satisfies the Project Management Institute’s (PMI) 21 contact hours needed to take the certification exam and includes the PMI Agile Certified Practitioner (PMI-ACP)® Handbook in preparation for the PMI-Agile Certified Practitioner (PMI-ACP)® exam. In this course, we cover the “Agile” approach to project management, which is intended for relatively small projects that require flexibility in their path, change management, and the team’s ability to adapt to any situations that arise during the project lifecycle. It also includes how to plan and implement the “Scrums” as part of the Agile methodology.
  • Project Management Foundations – This 3-day workshop is intended for people who want to learn the fundamentals of project management while not necessarily seeking to be certified. The classroom content will focus first on developing the project description (scope) and the associated budget and schedule. Additionally, other critical management tasks shall be included, such as dealing with changes, addressing risks, determining the quality objectives and how to reach them, and dealing with risks and stakeholder management.
  • Project Management Professional (PMP) Exam Preparation Workshop is geared primarily for people who want to take and pass the PMP exam and satisfy the PMI’s 35-hour requirement. However, it also focuses on training participants in the basics of project management, such as developing the scope, budget, cost baselines, and the other subsidiary factors, which lead to a successful project. This is a 4-day course, plus there is also a 1- to 2-day review session for people who need extra support shortly before taking the exam.
  • PMP Exam Refresher CourseThis course is intended for reviewing the exam material with an emphasis on the terms, concepts, and calculations needed to pass the exam. We will also cover the Project Charter, PM Plan, Earned Value Management (EVM), the ITTOs, and other sections of the PMBOK needed to pass the PMP Exam. Emphasis will be placed on understanding the elements required to improve participants’ project management skills.
  • Quality Management  -This course teaches participants the importance of Total Quality Management (TQM), including both quality assurance (QA) as well as quality control (QC.) QA focuses on ensuring the correct policies, procedures, templates, and other documents are sufficient to prepare high-quality deliverables and products. QC ensures the deliverables/products are properly inspected and, as required, are revised to meet the quality and product requirements. Standards, such as Six Sigma and ISO (9001 and other subsidiary sections), are used in this 2-day workshop.
  • Risk Management: – this 3-day course focuses on identifying, qualifying (i.e., scoring), quantifying, and preparing responses for uncertainties in projects. These uncertainties, which can be positive (opportunities) or negative (threats,) are collectively known as “risks” and are inherent and, at times, a precarious part of any project. To that end, we help our clients during this course to learn the fundamentals of risk management, as well as develop a risk management plan for their project work.

Sustainability

  • ISO 37101 Sustainable Development in Communities – This 4-day course covers the ISO standard itself and the ancillary processes and guidelines needed to develop for sustainable development in communities effectively. The ISO standard itself provides an outline and a checklist of tasks and procedures required to create and deploy a plan for sustainable development effectively. Still, it lacks real-world examples and applications, which are crucial in effectively understanding the standard’s intent. To that end, we assist participants in interpreting and implementing the standard through actual case studies.
  • Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Examination Prep Course – Maneuvering through LEED accreditation and certification can be daunting, not just the requirements for both, but the core guidelines that help us reach sustainable design ultimate construction. Therefore, we have designed this 4-day course to not only help you pass the LEED exams you select but also, and more importantly, to develop strategies for creating sustainable environments for individuals and communities. Additionally, this course will help you understand and develop, as required, an environmental management system (EMS) should you be seeking certification per the ISO Standards, which is an integral part of the European Union‘s Eco-Management and Audit Scheme (EMAS).
  • Sustainable Project Management Workshop – This 5-day course combines the Project Management Institute’s (PMI) framework for managing projects focusing on achieving sustainability goals, including social equity, regardless of whether you are pursuing sustainable certification. To that end, we will use real-world case studies to understand the approach behind carrying out a project successfully while adhering to sustainable guidelines and requirements.
