Project Management Training in Phnom Penh
When I was told that there just isn’t any Project management training in Phnom Penh, I wasn’t entirely sure it was true. Surely most organisations run projects, so they would need project managers to run them. As I discovered in some of my networking meetings this isn’t always the case. When I took a look at some of the recruitment sites in Phnom Penh, there were very few ads for businesses looking for project skills. I’ve come to the conclusion that I’m one of the few project management trainers in Cambodia. (Unless someone tells me otherwise). This must mean that there is no need, or no understanding of the value of good project management or the training in it.
Why do we need training in Project Management?
The most common consequences of poor project management are overruns in terms of cost, time and the lack of quality in the final results. This crosses sectors in terms of construction, administration and of course software development where Digital Rain has its’ core skills. A failure to plan is a plan to fail as the saying goes. This quote being as true today with modern technology, as it was generations ago. Collaboration and communication tools have all helped improve some issues, but where people and technology overlap, there’s always room for improvement. Investing the effort in planning and communication up front, always has a benefit down the line.
What I teach
I teach the Prince2 project management methodology. I can also teach how to integrate the Prince2 framework with Agile software development to get the best of both worlds.
The courses take a generic view of best practice as well as being able to tailor the lessons to fit particular customers and create a custom course for your team.
Courses can be structured as a short overview, to a six session course with practical exercises.
