Building a Training Curriculum

Click here to download this overview as a pdf.

Training is one of the premiere services offered by a Project Management Office (PMO). In fact, in many organizations, the primary role of the PMO is to offer project management training to the staff. However, there is a lot to consider in a training program. Like many of the services offered, training must be considered holistically, along with any other services that the PMO is offering. Your PMO may only have the resources to offer one or two classes. However, if you have the resources, and if your pool of project managers has the need, you would want to develop an overall curriculum, including classroom and non-classroom based learning opportunities. This class will provide you with the skills necessary to build such a curriculum.
