I just finished taking the 120VC Project Leadership Program (PLP) and read a good portion of this guide. This book provides the tools and disciplines to stick to standards that make project managers successful. Project Managers lead and it is so much easier when you can follow a proven plan.
The 120VC Guidebook is one of the most useful books on Project Management that I've ever read. It really solidifies the 'theoretical' Project Management taught by PMI with the many different company specific methodologies and gives you a great process to start at a new company and 'hit the ground running'.
The Irreverent Guide to Project Management is an outstanding tool for referencing comprehensive, common sense, real world project management practices. Filled with 350 pages of step-by-step processes and procedures, it’s the ultimate “cheat sheet” and a steal at $19.99. Thanks, Jason!
It’s Never Just Business offers valuable insights and actionable techniques for transforming a group of employees into a committed, high-functioning team. Successful leadership is born from purpose, empathy, vulnerability, connection, and failure.
The 120VC Project Leadership Course is different. Unlike other training on Leadership, Project, Product, and Change Management, this course is taught by a team that delivers global transformational projects for our clients.
We managed Trader Joe’s nationwide merchant processing system upgrade. We did it in 6 months with zero downtime. Visa called it a flawless implementation in record time.
“I highly recommend 120VC. They are a firm with a strong methodology, a proven track record of success at Trader Joe’s Company, and a group with the requisite know-how and emotional intelligence to deliver mission-critical projects.” – Ron Glickman, Chief Information Officer Trader Joe’s Company
We just completed a Cloud Transformation for Sony Pictures. We took their complete IT environment to the cloud in 9 months with no service disruption. That’s over 240 applications and 900 environments.
We recently implemented Okta’s single sign-on identity management tool in all T-Mobile retail locations. That’s over 40k users with no service disruption. And.
If compared to a study by McKinsey that found on average, large IT projects run 45% over budget and 7% over time while delivering 56% less value than predicted, we are completing projects with 100% better results than the average.
We aren’t teaching theory and vocabulary. We are teaching people how to be leaders that Get Sh*t Done. We send 120VC team members through this program to learn our proven approach to delivering global transformation projects. The other guys are teaching what they think works; we are teaching what we have proven works! Join us!
The PLP is designed to educate and ignite a movement that will elevate the practices of leadership, teamwork, and humanity in the workplace, maximize human potential, and accelerate innovation.
There are two weeks of assignments and learning community interaction between each online instructor-led class. Each week’s assignments should take 2 – 3 hours weekly. There is a total of 8 two hour instructor-led classes; the entire program is 14 weeks.
