It has been quite a year for Causeway – from having to cancel all face to face training bookings from March, to adapting every course for online and writing new courses to fit the new ways we need to work. Thanks so much to our loyal clients, our business is surviving and thriving. It’s almost time to take a deep breath at the end of this turbulent year for everyone. First of all (I am a project manager after all) here is a summary of the project management courses we will be delivering. Let us know if we can help your organisation choose and implement projects successfully in the new year. Thanks again and hope you get time to relax and reflect before the new year begins.
Extensive training of project managers has shown me that, however skilled an individual project manager is, there are often systemic reasons why projects fail. This new course is for organisational leaders – those who might sit on a project board or steering group, who are (or about to be) project sponsors.
The session looks at aligning projects with organisational strategy, and assessing them to make the right choices. It also clarifies project roles and responsibility, and looks at guidance, reporting and assurance through the phases of a project.
Take a look and please get in touch if you would like to discuss running this for a team in your organisation. Details here: Where Strategy meets Projects
We have developed a comprehensive four modular programme, each online session lasting 3 hours. These can be run as stand alone modules or as an ongoing development programme. The modules will give anyone with management responsibilities a complete toolkit to run a highly motivated and high performing team, ensuring focus in rapidly changing times.
The four modules cover:
– How to Brilliantly Manage your Team
– How to have Honest and Challenging Conversations that get Results
– Developing a High Performing Culture
– Thriving in a Changing World
Further details here – Everything you need
We will be running these sessions for in house and also as open courses. Let us know if you want to chat about us using or adapting these sessions for your organisation.
Really delighted to have a whole series of open online sessions booked for delivery via HQN Training. Click links below to see dates available.
When we return to our organisations after many weeks of remote working, organisational cultures will have shifted, people will be used to working in different ways and expectations will have changed. Some new ways of working may have proved to be better, some of your core priorities may not now seem as relevant or achievable. Some staff will have stepped up to the challenge and developed new skills. Some staff will have been on furlough and may need help to adjust.
We are offering a three hour virtual workshop (available in house and as open courses) which will give you great techniques to plan yet another transition as you prepare for a return to a post pandemic world. How do you build on what you have learnt about yourself and your team and what’s important for your organisation as you manage the return to this new way of operating.

We are all working in uncertain times and unusual situations. As soon as we’ve got a plan, things change. It becomes out of date and we need to rethink our approach. This leaves people feeling frustrated, often resulting in extra work and a lack of clarity and direction.
I have developed an online interactive session which gives delegates the opportunity to explore where things are going wrong and how to cope with this. It provides practical information and oﬀers techniques from the ﬁeld of project management. It will bring focus so you can plan, prioritise and adapt as situations change in the months ahead.
Really pleased to be delivering this online session for Housing Quality Network – see details here. Project Management Essentials Open Course
