What this is

An overview of a company's comprehensive program for training and supporting their project managers. This model framework is designed to provide "just-in-time" learning opportunities for your PMs as they need support. Available learning mechanisms include several different options:

  • traditional one and two day classes, semester classes held 2 hours at a time, and/or small-bite course modules;
  • brown bag knowledge-sharing seminars over lunch;
  • self-study opportunities via printed materials and/or the web and/or video tape;
  • and use of lessons learned, project documents, etc. from actual company projects.


Why it's useful

Project managers need an array of learning opportunities as they do their jobs. Traditional training courses provide a piece of their education. But other means, such as knowledge sharing sessions among PMs, can provide valuable job-and company-specific how-to learning. And 2 hour course "nuggets" delivered as needed can be more effective for helping PMs apply a new technique to a current project than a one-day course that occurs at the wrong point in time. A program such as the one shown in this template can help you provide an effective array of learning opportunities.


How to use it

This table provides an example of an overall program. The particular subjects listed are generally needed by all project managers for a well-rounded skill set. The list can be tailored for your company based on the experience levels and prior training received by your managers and any special training needs. Use this template as a planning aid for identifying the types of learning activities and important subjects.
