The 3 C’s of Training (Capability, Competency & Certification)

Home / The 3 C’s of Training (Capability, Competency & Certification)
When Training is discussed, it can often be a generic term that while is well understood but does not show immediate value. At Turlon, when we talk about training, we try to focus on the model to deliver value through training which is:

Training Value = Develop Core Project Capabilities + Enhance Organisation / Resource Competencies + Provide Personal Certification

It is a simple enough model, but one that tries to capture the essence of what training should do. When we talk about capabilities we are interested in how an company, function, or person can achieve their own objectives and what they need in order to achieve this. Capacity is the development of a resources ability measured in quantity and level of quality, over an extended period.

These three parameters gives us the basis to develop some very relevant and focused training / workshop modules. Training that focuses on developing Project Management Capabilities involves the following:

  • understand the agile, iterative and waterfall approach to project delivery
  • define project objectives and create a project initiation document
  • show how a work breakdown structure as an input to developing a project plan
  • describe the different components of a project schedule
  • present an effective project management plan (Project Plan Templates) and how it is used to identify risks and issues
  • describe efficient techniques for controlling project performance (Change Control and Dashboard Reporting Templates)
  • define how projects are closed successfully using project closure templates
  • understanding how to setup a project in whatever application (i.e. Trello, Jira, Wrike, MS Project, etc.)

Training the is focused on the capacity efficiencies of how projects are delivered focus on the following measurable’s:

  • apply the principles behind time and cost estimation => focus on good estimation and contingency allowance
  • understand the different components of a project schedules and how these can be applied => focus on agile driven planning rather than plan-driven approach
  • deliver and manage an effective project management plan = reduce scope creep and cost of change
  • escalation management and how to do it => reduce information overhead and allow prioritisation of information
  • managing multiple projects => managing dependencies and ensuring less things falls between the cracks
  • defining and understanding project KPI’s => projects are able to manage and report on reliable KPI’s

Using the Project Management Institute as a platform for certification, we can then provide four different certifications

  • Entry LevelCAPM® (Certified Associate in Project Management) for those entered Project Management (Duration 3 days of classroom based training)
  • AdaptiveACP® (Agile Certified Practitioner) for Agile Project Management Professionals with 1 year of agile experience (Duration 3 days of classroom based training)
  • Senior Project ManagersPMP® (Project Management Professional) for senior Project Management Professionals with 3 years of project experience (Duration 4 days of classroom based training)
  • Multi-Project Managers / Business Managers: – PgMP® (Program Management Professional) for Project managers managing multiple projects with 4 years of multi-project experience (Duration 3 days of classroom based training)
