The PM Skills® Story

For a number of years, project leaders have been trained in the tools, techniques, and procedures of project management, but they’ve had limited access to resources that focus on the skills they need to lead effectively. The PM Skills® courses and PMSCP® certification are designed to help practitioners close that skills gap.

Leading the way to project success.

PM Skills® – Courses to further develop key skills for project leaders.  

PMSCP®The certification for project leaders who have been trained in applying those skills.

Backed by MindEdge’s 15 years of experience in offering high quality project management training, PM Skills® is on a mission to make the most valuable (and hardest to teach) skills accessible and easier to master for learners.

This is not test prep—the goal of PM Skills® and the PMSCP® certification is to prepare project leaders and teams to guide their organizations towards better team performance and project completion.

Skills training that is focused on preparing you to guide your team towards success.

Our survey of experienced and veteran project leaders showed a series of shared crucial skills. From this feedback, we’ve crafted an initial set of PM Skills® courses. They include courses on the following topics:

  • Interpersonal Skills for Project Leaders*
  • Team Development
  • Communication
  • Negotiation
  • Leadership
  • Conflict Management
  • Analysis and Problem Solving
  • Change Management
  • Critical Thinking and Decision Making
  • Embracing Risk and Uncertainty
  • Interaction and Engagement
  • Expanding Focus and Alignment
  • Tailoring and Adaptability
  • Planning and Project Design

*It is recommended that learners complete the Interpersonal Leadership for Project Leaders course prior to beginning the others.

These self-paced courses include games, exercises, quizzes, and video segments from experts in project management offering real-world advice. Brief case studies focus on tackling difficult skills challenges.  All PM Skills® courses carry Project Management Institute Professional Development Units (PDUs).
