Overview

A highly trained team is essential to be competitive in the global economy. Focused training can help project teams learn new skills and techniques that can improve effectiveness, comply with regulations and standards, reduce time to market, and improve overall product quality. All of the training I offer is based on Ben Franklin’s observation:

Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn.

I have presented training courses worldwide for over 25 years. Many of these courses are often invited tutorials presented in conjunction with international conferences. Attendees at my courses have consistently rated them as Excellent. I offer a variety of training courses in several different settings including:

Public Training Courses

Public training courses are usually half-day, full day or two day courses on a variety of topics. In a public course, people from different companies and backgrounds participate in discussions and interactive exercises. Not only do you benefit from the training but also from interacting with people in other companies often facing the same challenges you are.

On-site Training Courses

On-site training courses are presented to project teams and groups at your facility. This affords your staff the opportunity for everyone to hear the same message and participate in group discussions and interactive exercises. I often tailor on-site courses based on the client’s specific training needs. Tailored, on-site training provides one of the most cost-effective ways to train teams and improve skills.

Brown Bag Seminars

Brown bag seminars are a collection of short, focused, informal seminars aimed at helping organizations improve predictability, productivity, quality, and time-to-market. By presenting focused topics in a short (usually 1-2 hours) informal setting, your staff can learn new skills and techniques that can help them in their work without affecting time-critical project schedules.
