2012: The Year for Sustainability Based Project Management.

GPM’s new approach to project management education has sustainability at its core. The idea that in order for effective learning to take place, an appropriate teaching method must be employed with content that is practical and immediately applicable.

Using an iterative process that combines explaining and hands on exercises that evolve throughout the four day course using training-methods  called EnVexes. By giving spoken explanations of the subject matter with visual aids, we can ensure that we explain all aspects of the various topics, provide examples, and hold Q&As.  Each of their instructors have extensive project management experience and holds multiple accredited certifications.

Through the EnVex sessions,participants develop a framework that builds throughout the course so that upon completion, having a sound working knowledge an immediate impact to the attendees organization can be made.
