The course, aptly called Project R.E.A.L - Real Experience, Applied Learning is an advanced course designed specifically for Project Managers and Business Analysts which expands on delegates? previous learning and job experience in a robust, dynamic, and fast paced environment using a hands-on, live project simulation

The course is guided by an experienced Facilitator with extensive background in Project Management and Business Analysis. Students take part in a full project life cycle playing multiple roles (PM, BA, QA and Development) and tackle multiple methodologies, core components of artefacts, tasks, and deliverables of a real project.

The programme being held in Cape Town on the 23rd of May will be guided by Dayle Beyer, a senior instructor of Watermark Learning?s business analysis and project management programmes. Beyer, who resides in the United States, holds Project Management Professional (PMP), Certified Business Analyst Professional (CBAP), Risk Management Professional (RMP) status and Associate Certified Coach (ACC) credential.

"FTI is delighted at the opportunity to be able to host Dayle Beyer in South Africa for the pilot programme. Beyer has over 25 years of experience in both Project Management and Business Analysis and is a regular speaker, coach and facilitator at organisations around the world,' says Mould.

Delegates who attend this programme will experience the pitfalls, roadblocks, curveballs, successes and celebration that happen on every project as part of a working team.

Delegates learn how each project role thinks and what they are responsible for. The activities in the workshop will prepare them to handle obstacles that can impede project success. Attendees don?t just hear about or practice what they might do; students experience it and actually do the work in an accelerated fashion.
