The new PD Training Signature series course, Time Management for Managing Projects and Complex Tasks, incorporates best practices from a range of professional frameworks like Agile SCRUM, to create a real-world time management training course for the real-world project manager.
Managing complex tasks, like projects, requires a range of time management skills. Most important is the estimation process for costs and timings. Most project estimations are difficult to forecast, hence why a large number of projects end up being delivered over-time and over-budget.
We introduce course participants to a range of modern tools including mobile apps, online counters and timers, which allow you to better leverage your time while at work. Mobile devices can now be important tools when improved productivity is the primary goal.
Learn essential skills like how to conduct multiple estimation techniques, delegation of tasks, meeting management, managing a crisis situation and much more! You will learn about your own personality type as well as other personality types and how to engage others in an entirely new way that provides a path to better communication and improved time management skills.
PD Training can provide a complete professional development program for your organisation which includes personality profiling and automated training needs analysis, so contact us today to learn more!

"In my work and personal life I have been struggling with time management for years, Derrick the facilitator provided some great tools and delivered the content in a method that was relevant and effective to meet my learning style. I have also been working through some barriers in my work environment that Derrick was able to discuss with me after the session which was extremely supportive and important for me at the time. I'd be more than happy to recommend course and Derrick for his amazing service and attention to his learners. Derrick would be happy to know I've already undertaken 3 of the several changes today which has already provided an impact!"

"I believe the profiling was very beneficial in encouraging all participants to look beyond themselves to enable them to gain an understanding of others and their natural tendencies. I am hopeful that having key team members attend this training together will enable us to communicate better, increasing productivity and reducing frustration within the organisation."

Our trainer (Karen) was fantastic. really bought the group together and could link her experiences with us. Fantastic. Thank you Karen ”
“ Our trainer was excellent. She tailored the day to our particular needs, and she was very flexible - allowing us extra time to discuss issues of most relevance to us. She was engaging and very adept at making people feel very comfortable talking about themselves and issues in a way that work colleagues might find difficult ordinarily. I cannot recommend her highly enough as a trainer.
Presentation of the training was to a very high standard!!! Very impressed.! ”

When you want a tailored learning experience targeting exactly what you want without bringing everyone physically together, the best choice is a Live Online Class run by PDT.
We tailor the content and activities to be specific to your current needs and the needs of the people and run the course in our usual activity-based workshop style training, however, the participants can all be offsite, or some can be in the room with others offsite.
Unless you have a preferred tools we use 'Zoom for Education' that includes enhanced collaboration features such as One-click content sharing, real-time co-annotation (people can work together in activity files), and digital whiteboarding, we also include things like live polls and group chats so you virtually have the same collaborative learning experience of attending a course in a room with other people.
We have delivered these 100's (if not 1000's) of times, and get great outcomes. We achieve great outcomes because we keep our learner centric approach - just because it’s delivered through a screen to some or all participants doesn’t mean it needs to be less tailored or less personalised.
You still have an expert trainer who talks to you prior to the session and tailors the delivery to use your terminology, ensure activities are relevant and directly applicable and ensures an engaging learning experience that provide people with skills and techniques they can apply the very next day.
A hybrid class is with some people connecting online, and some people physically together in the same room.
We provide the Training Management Centre which is an information hub before, during and after training.
