An Interactive Project Management Learning Experience

"Become a better project manager with CoLAB’s practical learning programmes."

CoLAB Learning introduces learners to the latest in project management best practices, applied in a “Best Practical” approach. The objective is to ensure that all the learning can be practically applied on return to the workplace.

Our Approach

CoLAB Learning aims to introduce learners to the latest in project management best practices, applied in a “Best Practical” approach.  The objective is to ensure that all the learning can be practically applied on return to the workplace.

Our programmes are designed to suit your organisation’s requirements. Training and mentoring are done at your premises (or online) by one of our professional project management coaches, ensuring your team develops the capabilities to implement future projects the best practical way.

WHAT MAKES COLAB LEARNING UNIQUE?

CoLAB’s workshops are designed to create an environment where theory is applied practically and as far as possible applied in the context of the clients’ frameworks.

Participants are empowered and their confidence is increased with the knowledge on how to apply the available tools in project management.  Learners receive practical guidelines and templates that can be used in future projects.

WHY DO WE DO LEARNING?

At CoLAB we have found that many project managers never received formal training on project management.  Often employees are nominated to form part of a project team without fully understanding the basics of a project, their roles, and the required skills. 

In providing these employees with practical project management training,

  • they develop the capabilities to implement future projects in the best practical way,
  • their productivity on the project team increases, because they have the tools and templates at hand,
  • they add more value to the project and the team; and
  • they feel empowered with knowledge they can apply.

WHO DO WE TRAIN?

CoLAB Learning provides training solutions for teams or individuals within organisations, working on projects, who have not had formal project management training, and who are looking to learn how to manage projects better.

  • First-time project managers
  • “Accidental” project managers, ie. a person with another “day-job” but s/he was allocated the responsibility to get the project delivered and then called the project manager
  • Anyone who is expected to manage a project or a stream inside a bigger project, with no or limited prior project management training
  • Anyone who wants to fully participate in project teams and/or manage activities of other projects, and
  • Our learning engagements have proven to be hugely popular in other African countries due to the practical nature and immediate benefit they provide.
