These courses are designed to support ongoing learning, and are more than a set of worksheets or templates. They include videos, exercises, interactive multimedia examples, case studies, interaction with fellow participants and your trainer, and more.

The best online learning goes beyond the content. Our trainers teach skills and knowledge in a way that connects to your goals, hopes, and values AND demonstrates how these connect to your work and world.

Welcome to Virtual Training @IAP2 USA!


 

onlinecourseChoosing the Right P2 Tools
This course focuses on the critical and oft-neglected professional development “zone” between process design and detailed instructions on specific techniques – that space where practitioners and decision makers decide which tools and techniques to employ.

Too often those decisions are based on the practitioner’s experience or comfort with a particular technique, a project lead or decision maker’s new favorite tool, fears about stakeholder influence or conflict, and so on. While there are always demands and constraints on choices, this course offers a more thoughtful and efficient approach to wisely choose tools and techniques to support stakeholder engagement, meet your project and engagement objectives, and account for key variables including schedule, budget, opportunities, and risks.
