Project Management

Surviving Project Management

The Fundamentals of Managing Projects

From managing team members to dealing with deadlines and battling budgets, project management is challenging under the best circumstances. For the nearly 50% of PMs working without the proper tools and training, it can feel impossible.

Inspired by the television show Survivor

Never Boring!

Warm and Inclusive.

The class atmosphere was so inclusive! I often attend classes and don't have a sense of belonging, but did not experience that with this class. It was interactive rather than a lecture. Our instructor knew when to let us discuss ideas vs. "instructing" us. Persimmon knocked it out of the park!

I love that the same concepts can be used by people from different industries, education or experience, with such diverse job titles and on an endless amount of short or long-term projects. Thank you so much!
