Project Manager Program

Project Leadership Program

Læs dansk udgave Read Danish version.

Projects can be big or small and vary in complexity. However, all projects entail a variety of challenges, and having the right tools, skills and experience is key to their success.

Promentum’s project leadership program gives your project leadership skills a solid boost. Our project leadership program will develop your skills and equip you to lead, manage and drive large-scale projects and to ensure integration into the project from start to finish. You will be taught the tools and methods to handle complexity in projects, and you will develop your role as a project leader, becoming aware of your personal strengths and weaknesses. You will also be given the tools to challenge and determine the quality of a project’s outcome and impact.

Why Project Leadership and not Project Management?

At Promentum we strongly believe that you won’t succeed with your projects without your tribe (your project team) and other relevant stakeholders. This means that mastering project development tools etc. is not enough to succeed with your projects. Being able to lead within a project is crucial. You are dependent on whether the people you surround yourself with tend to follow you.

Throughout our Project Leadership Program we will focus on your ‘people skills’ as a Project Leader as well as the more ‘hard core’ project management tools. Our many years of experience has taught us that both are equally important.

Who is this program for?

The project leadership program is for people who are facing the prospect of becoming a project leader – or who are already project leaders. It is for people who want to develop their personal project leadership skills and, at the same time, gain an insight into the distinct complexities of project work.

Methodology & Structure

During this program, you will work with your own challenges in relation to project leadership. In our approach, project management skills have no value in themselves. Their value depends on whether they lead to a change in your behavior as a project leader. We therefore strive to stage and facilitate processes in ways that allows you to apply the tools in practice and work with your personal action plan.

This program spans a period of six months and comprises five two- or three-day modules, excluding homework. The exam takes the form of a project kick-off workshop where you design and develop a project “live” and receive 30 minutes of individual feedback.
