Highlighting Reviews of The Fast Forward MBA in Project Management 

Attend project management training or just read a good book?  

Good question! 

Read some recent reviews from Amazon: 

“This was a textbook we used in my graduate level Project Management course last term. I loved this textbook and am keeping it for future project references! It has so many tools and forms to use, and is not a dry read by any means. I am recommending it on to my boss to refer to.” 

“The book is clear and is easy to follow. It is written in a very logical way, so you are able to gain knowledge gradually from beginning to end.” 

Definitely buy the book!! The Fast Forward MBA in Project Management

The Art and Science of Project Management: Every Project Manager is a Leader 

People rarely attend project management training to hone their leadership skills. But that doesn’t mean they become a better leader from the lessons they learn in our classroom. 

Marco Velarde proposes three big characteristics that all great project managers share. Read his article on MPUG. 

Leadership is a big topic. Project managers definitely need the “soft” skills, such as communication and collaborative problem solving. In Versatile’s project management training we ask how being able to calculate a critical path makes you a better leader. 

“It gives me credibility.” 

“Team members understand urgency.” 

“I can communicate the impact of scope changes to the schedule.” 

“My team sees the big picture.”

After Your Project Management Training, Which Tools Will You Use? 

One of the most common questions we hear in Versatile’s project management classes is “what is the best tool?” 

First, there are tools for all kinds of project management activities – scheduling, resource management, communication, etc. 

Versatile is focused on Microsoft products. So we offer Microsoft Project training and support, including Microsoft Project Online. SharePoint is also a good tool for managing projects. Watch this video!  

Here’s a great blog post from PMI on the topic of Project Management tools.
