Velociteach was honored to provide custom PM classes to TVA. Our mutual dedication to excellence motivated all of us to achieve exceptional results in a very short time frame.
Kennesaw, GA (PRWEB) November 03, 2011
Velociteach, the international leader in project management training, is proud to announce that it has completed its project with the TVA, training the $10 billion company's project managers in a tight six weeks to keep its projects on schedule. Now compliant with PM industry standards, the nation's largest public power company can effectively carry out its newly drafted project management initiatives.
Andy Crowe, Velociteach CEO and Founder, is thrilled by the partnership:
"Expanding our partnership with such a large and multifaceted an entity as the TVA is exciting for Velociteach. TVA is top of its game in delivering mission-critical services to the Southeast, and we were honored to work with them. Our mutual company cornerstones of striving for excellence motivated all of us to achieve exceptional results in a very short time frame."
In 2010 the TVA announced its plan to improve and standardize the way the company runs projects across the board. Providing power to nine million people in seven states, the corporation manages extensive energy projects, including three nuclear power plants, environmental initiatives, Tennessee River management and regional economic development.
Today Velociteach completed an intense training that delivered TVA's specific project procedures to 267 people in nine strategic business units, while also bringing the company in line with the PMBOK® Guide (Project Management Body of Knowledge), the globally recognized standard for the project management field.
"It was a thrill for us to work with a group as gifted and disciplined as the TVA," said Bill Yates, Director of Training for Velociteach. "We were struck by the enthusiasm of the TVA staff – they were quick to embrace the new PM procedures. We discovered that Kaizen, the practice of seeking continuous improvement, is as much a part of the DNA at the Tennessee Valley Authority as it is at Velociteach."
