VivaLDI – The Project Management Master Class in Leading Digital Initiatives – is uniquely crafted for managers of complex digital projects, and is led by someone with extraordinary experience in the field. If you want a digital project to be completed perfectly, and to come in on time, and on budget, you have to manage it using professional Project Management disciplines.
Digital projects are unusually challenging. These initiatives typically involve a team from multiple disciplines, often in multiple locations, all working in virtual spaces on intangible outcomes. As Project Manager, you must have the skills to conduct this orchestra and lead the digital project to success.
“I have never come across such a brilliant course presenter. I’ve learnt so much!”
Pat Scott, Cambridge
The quality and practicality of VivaLDI has made it the digital PM master class of choice for major organisations in Finance, Technology, Education, Marketing, and Government – including Deloitte, Standard Bank, Unisa, and Aqua Online.
In three days, you will learn how to become a successful leader of digital projects. You’ll master core Project Management disciplines from the toolkits of PMI, Prince2 and Agile, and develop powerful, practical approaches to interpreting and applying these disciplines.
Your facilitator is a PM who has led international award-winning digital projects, including building Marriott’s global e-commerce site (which pulls in over $24 million every day); re-architecting Intel’s vast engineering site; developing complex mobile apps for You Magazine and Nimue Skincare International; and creating websites, e-learning ecosystems, and social media platforms for start-up businesses around the world.
Whether you are charged with building an e-commerce system, a mobile app, or a blog, what you learn in this remarkable class will put you in command.
