Share Article

PDUs for Pennies™ workshops have provided project management practitioners the opportunity to benefit from Lee Lambert's wisdom, expand their expertise and earn needed PDUs/Contact Hours for over four years. These workshops are intense, focused, and cost effective. Small class sizes allow for invaluable personal attention and exclusive country club settings provide an environment conducive to optimum learning.

I appreciated the frank discussion of how to apply the lessons and information. Lee is a very engaging presenter!

Lambert Consulting Group announces PDUs for Pennies, a series of project management workshops, which will provide affordable Project Management Training. The PDUs for Pennies programs were initiated four years ago as a way to give something back to the project management profession and all of the people who have chosen this important career. Lambert Consulting Group has provided the most relevant topics, the finest instructors and the most beautiful and relaxing environments for their workshops.

There are seven different workshops available to the PM community. They include:

1. Defining, Estimating, Scheduling and Status/Forecasting Projects–Stop Talking About It and Start Doing It (8 PDUs)

This workshop capitalizes on real world materials and examples and the participant benefits from hands-on applications of proven value-added project management tools and techniques. The students define work scope, structure deliverables, define precedence relationships, accomplish quantitative progress assessment and make uncanny predictions for the future of your project efforts.

2. Advanced Risk Management Concepts & Integrated Network Scheduling (8 PDUs)

Risk: Do You Really Want to Do That?

This program teaches students when and how to implement the latest proven Risk Management tools and techniques on their projects. Participants learn simple and sophisticated approaches to identifying, quantifying and responding to a variety of project risks and how to effectively communicate the potential cause and effect impacts of those risks to organizational decision makers.

Integrated Network Scheduling: It’s All About Work Package Dependencies

This program thoroughly evaluates the potential benefits of using precedent diagramming methods to establish project duration, critical path, float paths, free float, shared float and total float. Approaches for building the network diagram are explained and real-world case examples will be used to demonstrate the process and the resulting project schedule.

“It made me laugh the whole time and I really learned a lot! It kept me awake and alive and the advice was excellent. A fresh new perspective of that really helped me understand the material better.”

~ Sandy England, Kenwood Country Club, Bethesda, MD; April 2005

3. Inspiration Engineering: Things Your Mother Never Taught You About Leadership (8 PDUs)

This one-of-a-kind learning program demonstrates how program, project or task managers can easily utilize simple tools and techniques to influence and inspire the “loaned” matrix resources that have been assigned to help accomplish project and organizational objectives.

4. Real World Earned Value for Dummies: Realizing the Benefits - Forget the Bureaucracy (8 PDUs)

Project management professionals attending this presentation learn why they shouldn’t wait for someone to tell them they have to use Earned Value. The benefits of EV are obvious and substantial. The professional responsibility of today’s PM pro is to establish and capitalize on this powerful concept using simple approaches that don’t require sophisticated organizational information and accounting systems or complex procedures.

“I appreciated the frank discussion of how to apply the lessons and information. Lee is a very engaging presenter!”

5. Real World Quantitative Methods for Successful Project Management (8 PDUs)

Lambert Consulting Group has listened to the feedback from thousands of past students and concluded that today’s project management professional community is ready to take it to the next level! In order to help practitioners make the transition to value added use of the information that “lives” in the PM professional’s InfoCentric world, participants in this intense program will be exposed to, and work with, a series of mini-case study exercise. Through these exercises, participants learn how to apply the formulas and methodologies to produce vital project information.

“The workshop reaffirms PM principles and practices – recharged a very tired PM.”

~ Janet Castellano, Worthington Hills Country Club, Columbus, OH; June 2005

6. Defining and Documenting Requirements: Capitalizing on the Work Breakdown Structure Concept (4 PDUs)

This is a new 4 hour workshop. Participants become skilled at understanding and implementing a value-added WBS process that facilitates the definition and development of clear and measurable requirements that must be satisfied to achieve project success.

“Real world, practical, intelligent information presented in a fun manner. Top notch!”

~ Greg Dartt, Ivy Hills Country Club, Cincinnati, OH; June 2005

7. Back to Basics Series: WBS & Precedence Diagramming (8PDUs)

A PROJECT MANAGEMENT SKILL BUILDING WORKSHOP:
