Project Success Method

Developed 36 years ago, the proprietary Project Success Method dramatically improves how teams define, plan, manage and control the projects or products they are working on. The Project Success Method was Agile before Agile even existed!

The powerful and practical hands-on methodology can be learned in a two day intensive program and applied immediately upon completion.

The Project Success Method requires no project management or Agile experience, no software tools or templates. It can be used in any business application or vertical market. It is neither “PMP Certification nor theory”. And provides the most effective and efficient process for developing, ensuring and maintaining consistency in project teams.

Learn our proprietary Project Success Method in a private on-site classroom setting or register for one of our scheduled upcoming classes in Atlanta, Chicago or Irvine.
