Have you ever wondered if training had real value to your business? Have you ever wondered what factor would increase the value of training to your business? Or, do you feel training employees (and yourself) is just a waste of time and money?
We had the same questions, so we set out to determine where the value of training is, if any at all. We surveyed thousands of training attendees, examined the exit survey results, conducted follow-up interviews and determined seven factors impact the value of training to your organization. Funny thing is, most training organizations don't evaluate the proper factors to determine if their training is effective. Worse, neither do their customers?
In this paper, we explore the seven factors, explain how they may or may not impact training's value and highlight which ones really impact the training effectiveness. Additionally, we give you the questions to ask of your training provider and yourselves to maximize the return on your training money.
Conflict is neither bad nor good. Conflict just is. It always happens. In some cases, we want conflict to happen. It pushes us forward, makes us better and takes us to the next level.
At the same time, conflict shoves us backwards, degrades performance and requires us to start over.
In this thought provoking paper, you'll learn the differences between "good" and "bad" conflict, when to introduce conflict and when to resolve it. Practical examples help you manage conflict for beneficial results and limiting detrimental consequences.
The purpose of this site is to help project managers succeed through education and training. By providing practical insights and information gained through years of experience, the Project Professors help new and established project managers understand how to manage project more efficiently with less stress.

Activities duration should not be any shorter than 1% or greater than 10% of estimated project duration. Duration shorter than 1% indicates micro-management of resources, while greater that 10% does not provide enough trackability of effort.
