Project Management Training for public sector professionals follows the accepted project management theory used by the corporate world and endorsed by PMI®.

The classes will add emphasis to certain aspects such as stakeholders that play a large role in public sector projects, and de-emphasize certain aspects, such as establishing budget since this usually happens prior to projects being assigned to a project manager.

As with our other classes, project management courses can be adjusted to align with wherever your city, county, or state agency is on its project management journey.

Training Options:

Succeeding with Public Sector Projects

Three Day Course

This course introduces your project managers to the 5 phases and 13 knowledge areas used by the Project Management Institute ®.   More than just telling, this workshop shows project management tools through role-playing when the participants become project managers in the fictional city of Dillard.  Dillard has lots of growth, lots of competing priorities, and no project management consistency. Through interactive exercises and discussions, your employees will build their project management skills and confidence.

Sponsoring Public Sector Projects

Half Day Training

IPD highly recommends that you pair the Succeeding with Public Sector Projects with this training to prepare your management team to support the project managers in your organization.

Public Sector Project Management Awareness in a Day

Full Day Course

Project Management continues to be one of those buzz phrases where you kind of sort of know what it means, but may not know exactly what it is. This course can be your first step in establishing a project management culture, or the course can be a great way to introduce project management terms and concepts to staff that serve on projects, but do not manage them, or the course can be part of your research to see if your organization wants to make the larger investment in training internal project managers. All concepts and examples are built with consideration of how projects emerge in and launch in government.

Public Sector Project Infrastructure Support

Half Day Training or More

Most organizations need additional project management support after their initial training. This course discusses the next level of supporting infrastructure government entities should consider to enable continuing effective and consistent application of project management concepts in years to come. The instructor will work with the organization to identify which core infrastructure pieces should be refined to move their project management to the next level.
