About the Project Management Masterclass.

More and more is expected from a project manager. Challenging goals, different interest of stakeholders and many dependencies between sub-projects ensure increasing complexity. Having project management skills has become important on all levels in the organization.  

The Masterclass Project Management focusses not only on theoretical knowledge, but also on the application in daily practice. The goal is to be able to deal with changes in an agile way.   

But the bar is being raised even higher. Next to agility, it teaches project managers how to initiate changes that benefit themselves. Hereby you will achieve effective and proactive behavior.

Course: Project Management Masterclass.


The Masterclass Project Management prepares you for the IPMA ICB4 (International Competence Baseline) exam, the international standard for project management competences. A valuable addition to this masterclass is the link to the Product Creation Process. 


Therefore, it is especially suitable for people who work in product or process development. It is for those who want to understand how project management is applied in combination with system engineering, quality management, process improvement, supply chain management, six sigma and failure mode & effects analysis.
