Project Management and Agile Ways of Working with Alice Jakins

An 8 week course designed to help Project Managers deliver work that matters, smarter, faster and more creatively!

Digital automation means many businesses are needing to upskill employees because their previous role has become redundant.

Online courses are plenty yet rarely are they completed because the content is boring or there simply isn’t time to get to it.

Every penny counts in covid times & businesses need to show results from their spend on training.

Empowering employees allows them to make decisions to support your clients.

Fresh * Fun * Deliberate

Who the %&#@ is Alice?

I’ve run projects - small and big. I’ve worked at agencies - small and big. I’ve worked in client’s businesses - small and big. I’ve worked with many diverse people - some with small egos - some with big egos 🙂

Bottom line - I want to help Project Managers see the wood from the trees. I want to help Project Managers stay focused on “delivering work that matters”. 

I personally run each weekly session with your team. 

Think of me as their Project Manager extraordinaire  guiding them with “the must know” tips, tricks, tools,  and trusted project management techniques.

I will be holding them accountable for driving agreed to action items each week when we meet.

 

Each week the team will be tasked with certain deliverables they will report back on.

57% of projects fail due to "breakdown in communications"

designed for

  • Anybody responsible for “delivering a project” inside your business.
  • Job Titles could include Project Managers, Account Managers, Group Account Directors, Delivery Managers, Brand Managers, Campaign Managers, Hybrid Scrum Masters/Project Owners, Custom Project Lead etc.
  • Group of 5 or more individuals from the same company - I can take up to 20 people. If more than 20 people we can look to divide the groups into 20 people teams.
