The Entrepreneurial PM :
Thinking Beyond the Process

Are you ready to accelerate your project management career?


Organisations are looking for flexible project managers who can make quick decisions and seamlessly navigate risks and ambiguity. These high-performing project managers possess a set of entrepreneurial skills that help them effectively navigate a dynamic project environment. Yet, according to Gartner (2018), less than 30% of project managers currently possess entrepreneurial skills. Adding entrepreneurial skills to a project manager’s capabilities elevates the project manager to project leader and positions them as a business partner. It increases their ability to steer the project, and team, through inevitable changes, barriers and stakeholder challenges to achieve project and business success.

The Entrepreneurial Project Manager is 40% more likely to deliver project business outcomes than traditional project managers due to the mastery of entrepreneurial skills and associated competencies.

They embrace change, foster innovation and deliver optimal business value. [Gartner 2018]

During this program participants will develop an understanding of the entrepreneurial mind set and learn the advanced tools and techniques relating to the entrepreneurial application of project management.  The program focuses on developing entrepreneurial capabilities to expand the role of project management and empower project practitioners to become strategic business partners.


This program is for project managers who:
  • want to elevate their capabilities and step up as a project leaders and strategic business partners
