"If you think training is expensive, try ignorance” – Peter Drucker.


Ben has been privileged to work at both IBM and Microsoft in his time, and both organisations really knew the value of training, but more importantly, the right type of training.  It was IBM who 1st introduced Ben to the quote above, and it’s a mantra he’s lived his life by ever since, he takes two weeks out each year for his own training schedule (check out the list of Ben’s MS Exams) and he invests his time sharpening his skills around the complimentary products to MS Project and Project Online.


When it comes to project management and the use of a tool (eg MS Project), training is a total necessity.  During implementations Ben has come across many people with the title Project Manager who haven’t had a day’s project management training in their life, nor have they had training in using any sort of tool – is it any wonder that many PMs feel unsupported?


Ben started his training career when Microsoft asked him to deliver the Enterprise Project Management University (EPMU) training for Project Server 2003 in EMEA and he has been running Project and Project Server / Project Online courses ever since.


Training can either be formal onsite training or 1:1 help via Skype.  A typical MS Project course lasts two days for a maximum of 8 delegates.
