“An opportunity not to be missed if you take your professional development as a Project Manager seriously”

Register and reserve your place on the next Extraordinary Project Management Programme.
You are in the right place – read on.
As experienced programme managers, we know that it is people who deliver projects – not spreadsheets, nor methodologies. Maintaining a people-centric focus in these five areas has helped us and others repeatedly deliver great results and take project management from good to great to EXTRAORDINARY.
Structured around the 5Ts of Extraordinary Project Management, you will learn new approaches and be supported whilst you put them into practice. The 5 Ts of EPM interconnect and re-enforce one another and the learning builds steadily throughout the programme. The Support Calls and Open Surgeries enable further learning from case studies and examples that are shared during the sessions.
What does this really mean in practice?
Target – EPMs have learnt how to get really clear about the Target they are aiming to achieve and to do so in a way that they can engage and align others to create synergy. Targets are described as outcomes, are made tangible, can be written down, viewed from all perspectives and have a ‘Big Why’ attached to them. EPMs explore the target, make sure the people in their Tribes really get it, and then keep that Target in their sights constantly whilst they progress through their project work. EPMs have their Target in mind when choosing priorities, managing Time, building their Tribe, and considering the direction they will take across the Terrain of their project.
Terrain – EPMs have learnt how to consider the landscape they are traversing as they move towards the Target bringing their Tribe with them. EPMs plan their work like a runner plans a marathon. They know that the Tribe that they are running the course of their project with will need different types of support at different stages. They consider where the tough, sticky or uphill stretches will be, where refreshment and rejuvenation will be necessary, the risks they might face, and they have strategies to deal with the expected and unexpected during their project journey. They know what their Target destination looks like and they know how to get their Tribe to that destination.
Tribe – EPMs have learnt how to build Tribes. They build connection around a shared goal and engage people in delivering what’s needed whether it is getting actions completed, risks under control, or the latest widget or innovative piece of technology being delivered. EPMs believe in what they are striving to achieve and the difference they are focused on making. They lead and make change happen and their project colleagues are inspired to step up and be more effective too. Their influence as a role model is wider than the team they manage or are part of, their impact is measurable and is noticed.
Time Mastery – EPMs have learnt how to get the best from the very precious and limited time available to them and their Tribe. They know how to optimise their productivity, how to focus where their attention has the greatest effect, and how to help those around them do likewise. They can see the bigger picture whilst honing in on the detail in order to help them juggle, balance and prioritise within the time available to reach the Target they are striving to achieve.
Taking Care of Yourself – EPMs have learnt how to Take Care of Themselves to ensure they are able to be at their best to lead and deliver. Taking care of themselves takes many forms ranging from standing firm in their values, moderating their levels of stretch and stress, managing their stakeholders and sponsors, ensuring they have the support network they need, balancing work and life, taking care of their personal goals, aspirations and self-fulfilment….especially when the going gets tough.
