I attended Nitin’s Project Management workshop conducted in my organization. I was already a certified PMP and was NOT the most eager person to have to sit through the 5 day.
However, the 5 days of workshop were very rewarding. Nitin’s workshop built on top of the basic PMP processes. The quality of discussion actually brought out the significance of various project management processes and how to go about implementing them(we all know Risk is probability into impact…but what exactly to do and how to go about it?).
Start of the session was really good by live example that if you go to 5 start resort for vacation and can’t provide chocolate icecream to your kid in resort as it is very far, project is kind of failed as your one of the most IMP stakeholder is not happy at all.
We were given few case studies on planning/estimation and various aspects of project management. This was really helpful as it gave us great exposure. Realistic challenges faced by project managers were discussed and all of us were encouraged to have active participation. We never felt that it is 5 days session as it was full of interactive discussions and brainstorming. The way it was executed was flawless as keeping around 15 PM engaged actively for 5 continuous days was a great challenge which Nitin handled very well.
The workshop took my understanding of Project Management a few notches higher.
Its been years since the workshop and I am still in regular touch with Nitin. I currently handle several critical projects in the IT security domain in one of the worlds largest international bank. I still use some of the basic fundamentals learnt in workshop from practical perspective (Mainly cost/risk/escalations/stakeholder management etc.) very effectively in my day to day life
If you are interested in Project Management topics, I highly recommend you attend Nitin’s workshop.
