Project Management Training

Posted by iammarchhare on 17 July 2009

I am not going to reinvent the wheel.  I had on my list to write to the Helium title “Finding project management training courses”.  I’m looking over the rankings, and I find it surprising that the #3 ranked article is actually the most comprehensive of all 3 articles.  It was written by E. Allen Barkum.

I’m thinking over what I would do differently.  For one thing, I might shy away from the prices.  Prices change, after all.  I would probably rewrite the first paragraph to be a little more grabbing.  I would include hyperlinks to the organizations I mentioned.

Other than that, I would stress webinars more.  They are usually pretty cost-effective (sometimes even free!).  I would stress PMI membership and meetings because chapter meetings often involve training as well (and membership usually means a discount on outside seminars).

It just doesn’t seem that these changes would make it worthwhile to pursue competing against the article.  I just can’t figure out why it’s ranked #3.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
