Better Understanding of and Effective Collaboration within Projects

Project teams have different types of team members. Some are full-time assigned to the project because of their expertise or experience; others only work for short periods of time on specific project tasks in certain phases of the project.
For team members who are on and off working in project teams, besides their regular jobs, a full project management methodology training would be overdone. The PM Framework training was especially designed for them. They will be familiarized with the project management approach and the issues of project teams from the viewpoint of their – often short-lived – role in the team. They will get to know the important project management tools used in projects and how and in what role they can contribute to the project tasks effectively.
The purpose of the Cadence PM Framework training is to provide a good understanding of the team members’ role and responsibilities, the use of project tools and ‘best practices’, necessary for effective contributions to the project objective.
