Abstract
A lot of informal PM learning occurs in places that aren't bounded by classrooms, or even cubicle walls. This presentation outlines ways to support that applied learning with a variety of formats, from online resources to project support groups to facilitation and consulting help.


What this is

A presentation introducing communities of practice and other project manager support as learning tools to facilitate just-in-time training. Screenshots and lessons learned from real-world implementations are included, along with bullet-point descriptions of how those companies launched their support efforts.


Why it's useful

Knowing how to successfully accomplish all the tasks, issues, and challenges a PM faces often requires more than formalized training. We need support mechanisms that help managers continually apply what they've learned in courses and expand their knowledge and capabilities as they encounter a wide variety of projects and situations. This presentation discusses how communities of practice and project support groups can promote ongoing knowledge and best practices exchange among their project managers, project facilitation and consulting help, and online how-to resources to ensure just-in-time learning throughout our projects.


How to use it

  • Browse the presentation for ideas on learning activities and modes that may be appropriate for your organization.
  • Use the presentation -- or portions of it, as appropriate -- to pitch ideas to your project support office.
  • Draw on the experience and examples in the presentation to coordinate similar efforts in your own organization.
