Back to Business School – Day 2

with one comment

Continued through my Program Management training course at work today.

Overall, I would say I like the class. The class and methodology being taught has too much of a 1998 feel and not enough 2008. The instructor is actually pretty good if you can get past his political commentary that he seems to sneak into his presentations. The case study and team exercise have actually complemented the training material very well. Not always the case with these types of courses.

Today, the instructor talked about how program / project infrastructure and collaboration are critical to program / project success. He then proceeded to demonstrate this with a Microsoft Word based project definition document. I cringed in my seat. Microsoft Word is great for drafting a letter or a document, but collaboration……not so much.
