PMI Begins Free Online Course on Project Execution

Individuals willing to have knowledge of best practices and tools needed to effectively manage projects from ideation to execution can now register for a free online course introduced by Project Management Institute (PMI).

PMI is the world’s leading association for project professionals and changemakers and through its KICKOFF programme, it hopes to equip participants with the best global practices in the field.

Much of the working world revolves around projects, which have become more complex than ever due to global Megatrends, including COVID-19, climate change, and more.

The need for changemakers, regardless of industry or position level, to be well-versed in the principles of project management in order to help drive results, has never been greater.

KICKOFF is the ideal solution for those who are new to doing project-based work and would benefit from learning project managements skills to help successfully navigate the process from idea to launch and execution.

The course is packed with digestible content, downloadable templates, a glossary of key terms, and thoughtful questions to ask to help anyone kick off any project at any time.

According to PMI’s Pulse of the Profession® report, an estimated 11.4 per cent of all investment into projects currently goes to waste due to poor project performance and an inability to nimbly adapt and execute in our rapidly changing world.

Introducing changemakers to project management strategies and tools enables single learners and entire teams to have the framework in place to adapt quickly and efficiently to help reduce wasted time and investment.

KICKOFF is the free, go-to resource for those looking to quickly learn the basics of effective and strategic project management to complete projects on time and within budget.

“KICKOFF is an easily deployable resource to ensure all employees and team members have the foundational skills to seamlessly collaborate and work smarter,” said George Asamani, the Business Development Lead for Africa at PMI.

“KICKOFF arms everyone from first-time project team members to C-Suite executives with the knowledge to kick start a project at any time to help drive results and deliver value,” he added.

No two projects are the same, so KICKOFF uses a guided questionnaire to tailor the learning experience based on the best project management approach for the needs of the project.

Learners are presented with a series of short modules that can be completed in sequence or in any order. The modules include bite-sized content focused on the fundamentals, and templates to be downloaded or distributed for immediate use.

Accessible to anyone from their laptop, phone, or tablet, KICKOFF can be completed in just 45 minutes, and is available in five languages: English, Chinese, Portuguese, Spanish, and French.

Following completion of the KICKOFF course, learners will receive a badge to share on their professional social media profiles to show their peers and company that they have the foundational skills to successfully lead any project.
