Who attends the “Project Management in a Nutshell” course for individuals to book onto?
While we see start-ups and more established businesses as a core part of our customer base,we also truly believe that we should offer training to individuals – those who want to improve their lot to go beyond ‘just managing’ and to thrive at work and therefore in their lives outside of the office too.  The most typical customer is a professional such as an architect, lawyer, university lecturer, who has achieved success in their specialist areas of work, but who now find themselves in a ‘management’ role. It is sad to see such competent, capable people struggling because they are offered little or no training to support their new responsibilities.
Many thanks for the great 'Project Management' training today. It was extremely useful and have immediately implemented it into my job. I look forward to more'.

Most people don't really get told how to 'manage' at work. It is assumed, and so people get promoted from specific roles into management roles, and so they may struggle. We want to help people so they don't struggle. 
We want people to succeed, to thrive.

About the “Project Management in a Nutshell” course:
Fundamentally – its about ‘management’. ‘Project management’ is quite a specific, defined term. Many of us manage something, whether or not it is defined specifically as a ‘project’. The approach, tools and techniques may be equally relevant to any area in which you work. While we focus on ‘project management’ in the course, you may see this as an all-round management course if that is what you are looking for.
The Project Management in a Nutshell course follows this ethos by providing focussed project management training, most notably in terms of providing context, kicking off a ‘project’, planning and managing. The training is augmented with personal ‘top tips’ to provide more insight and relevance.

A full week course may not be a viable option, although these long formal courses do provide significant benefits in their own way. Our short courses aim to provide focussed training to people who are busy and need to make compromises to fit everything in.
We want to help people to learn how to do it - quick tricks and key lessons, and let the use that as their foundation to develop. The service is a training and ‘knowledge transfer’ offering, based on expertise gained through work and life experience. It isn’t about learning to pass a test, or get letters after one’s name or a certificate.
This is why we offer the individual manager something better.
Aim:
Learn basic ethos, tools and techniques of project management, in an informal atmosphere where we can share learning and the benefit of our experience.
Summary:
Pretty much everything we are asked to do has some element of ‘project management’, whether we know it or not. The concepts and tools can be applied to many managerial tasks. This course is an amalgamation of useful project management concepts and tools, learned through training and from applied experience. In essence, the content goes beyond what you may think of as ‘project management’ and should be applicable to whatever you need to do.
So, investing a morning or afternoon or so in your own development can be paid off many times in the efficiency you may find by applying the learning you gain from the Manage and Thrive Training course. In terms of cost, we aim to provide a cost-effective offering to people, by spreading the cost of a course over the individual attendees. Our approach offers a great cost-effective, Value For Money (VfM) way to attend an excellent course.

Two quick notes:
1. The course is not a case of ‘death by PowerPoint’. There is interactive activity, and skills are taught using things other than a computer.
2. The course is generic in nature, so it should be applicable to people from many walks of life. We are working on a few specific sector-focussed variations (law and academia being the first two), should this be of interest to you.

What to do next...
Invest in yourself – book onto a course, spend a few focussed hours learning essential knowledge, tools and techniques, and kick-start your transition from ‘managing’ to ‘thriving’.
