Your journey with us will help you do remarkable work in a remarkable way.
What we do
We provide training, mentoring, tutoring and coaching in Project Management and related disciplines to organisations and individuals. Established in 1999, we’ve been refining our training in Project Management for 17 years.
We work to the requirements of an enabled Project Management environment and the Project Management Competency Development Framework (PMCDF) of the Project Management Institute (PMI®).
What our clients value
The industry within which we work is marred by cynicism. Our services are designed to meet the common-sense needs of people who really want to make it work.

All of our offerings are standards-centred, referencing the PMI®‘s PMBOK® Guide, PRINCE2®, and Agile principles. However, over the years we’ve learned that one size fits none. Our core offerings, and their modes of delivery, are therefore designed to make Project Management work for you at work:
- Consultative Tutoring in Microsoft Project
- Practical Certification Programme in Project Management (includes international certification in Microsoft Project)
- GRASP Framework (used in the GRASP Workshop in Project Management)
- Project Management Learning and Implementation Framework (for implementing Project Management in your organisation)
- Rapid Practical Learning Framework (used in the Intensive Workshop in Project Management)
- Question-Based Online Learning Framework
We provide a Project Management Learning Advisory Service and booking facilitation for exam preparation training. International exams (e.g. PMP®®) are provided via recognised, authorised and accredited organisations and testing centres throughout southern Africa. APMG examinations (e.g. PRINCE2®) may also be taken at our Cape Town office.
What we stand for
We believe that integrity and integration are interdependent. This means that Project Management training should be designed to lead to better support systems and structures, enabling the individual to make promises with growing confidence, knowing that it’s possible to keep them. The best learning takes place when it’s contextual to your work, and your way of working; when you’re actually doing the work and making the right mistakes.
What we strive for
We dig for underutilised and underestimated potential in individuals and project teams. We look for what really matters in projects, and we work hard to remove the obstacles to learning.
How we do it
Our Project Management training is aligned to producing outcomes that feed into personal and organisational strategies. Recommendations are based on goals and strengths. We guide you towards asking the relevant questions. Outcomes are not stated as earth-shattering overnight changes. Rather, changes take place incrementally: step-ups result from implementation, not from training per se. Training may take the form of a practical rapid-results workshop, Consultative Tutoring in Microsoft Project, online collaborative learning, or customised in-house learning events followed by ongoing support during implementation. We respect the confines of time and money. If Project Management training is to work in an organisation, it must be part of Project Management implementation.
