Project Management Training

Project Management for Social Good - Virtual Training Session

Join public and third sector consultants ROI (ή) for a comprehensive and highly interactive training session designed to transform your team’s approach to project management. The session is tailored specifically for those working in the realm of ‘social good’. It will help teams ensure all future projects or programmes run on time, in budget and within scope. Plus, it’s good fun! 

From our experience, many working in the realm of social good don’t equate what they do with ‘selling’ or ‘sales’. Moreover, these terms are often considered rather dirty ones in our sector’s dictionary (they shouldn’t be’). As a result, many public and third sector workers, from execs and CEOs to Account and Project Managers, are failing to consciously develop a skillset which is crucial to their work.

In this comprehensive one-day training session presented by global trainers Miradorus and public/third sector project and change management consultancy ROI(ή) Operations, participants will come to understand the highly relevant concept of ‘consultative selling’ (that is, selling services, many of which are intangible and thereby trickier to tackle) and how to practically apply it to their everyday.

The training

  • Understand the ‘fundamentals’ of good project management in a relevant, jargon-free way
  • Bring theory on project management to life with current real-life examples of project delivery in the UK public sector
  • Use simple and easy-to-understand project management templates to manage projects
  • Explore how to optimise project teams through effective project communications

Common Project Management Pain Points Addressed

Pain point 1: “We work so hard but we are always over budget and struggle with timescales. Our clients just aren’t as happy as we’d like them to be!”

Pain point 2:  “Prince2, PMI, Agile – so confused! We need a simple, effective way to manage projects suitable for our organisation and our people.”

Pain point 3: “I love managing projects but I am not big on bureaucracy. How can I marry structure with relationships to deliver projects successfully?”

Customised to suit you

The session can be customised to meet the bespoke needs of each team and organisation.
