Xinify saw a need for this training
San Ramon, CA (PRWEB) August 7, 2008
Xinify has released two on-demand education packs that provide training for IT project managers using CA Clarity PPM with the scheduling tools, Open Workbench (OWB) and Microsoft Project (MSP). For a one-time investment, these Education Packs end the drought in training resources for Clarity users. The video contents can be uploaded and accessed from a company's education portal, allowing unlimited access for an unlimited number of users, 24x7. With the Education Packs, there is no need for a new investment to train new hires or re-train existing staff. Contents can be viewed easily, in a browser supported by any computer operating system. The simple format means integration with most internal corporate training interfaces is a breeze.
The education packs, one for OWB, the other for MSP, each includes one two-day class on basic concepts and processes. OWB includes four advanced training modules: dependencies, loading patterns, autoscheduling, monitoring and controlling, and master/sub projects. MSP includes one bonus module: refining schedules. Each class consists of a video presentation, a workbook, and accompanying exercise files; each training module provides exercises to assist students with self-evaluations.
Included with the DVDs are printed workbooks, which present the same material, for easy, follow-along reference. The manuals are also available as PDF files, so individual users can print copies for themselves.
"Xinify saw a need for this training," said Noland Eidsmoe, Sr. Vice President, Client Services - North America, Xinify Technologies, "After working with so many clients, some for years, helping them establish or reconfigure their project management offices, training and mentoring project managers, it was obvious there was a gap in the resources available to companies using CA Clarity PPM. Our new self-paced training fills that hole, providing a much more efficient way to bring employees up to speed using Clarity."
These self-paced training courses can be used to earn PDUs toward a PMI credential. The series is the flagship product in a suite of project management tools available through Xinify Project Management Practice. Xinify helps customers implement project management offices (PMO), improve PMO effectiveness, design PMO roadmaps, and develop project manager assessment.
