The Online Project Leadership Training From The Experts In GSD.
The 120VC Project Leadership Program (PLP) is unlike other training on Leadership, Project, Product, and Change Management. It delivers how-to, real-world instruction on the latest best practices being used by our professional services teams to execute enterprise-wide projects for our Fortune 500 clients.
We managed Trader Joe’s nationwide merchant processing system upgrade—and we did it in 6 months with zero downtime. Visa called it a flawless implementation in record time.
Leaders drive change; they push the human race forward. Leaders inspire those around them to reach for greatness. Great leaders prove that extraordinary leadership doesn’t require official authority, it just requires that we put our team members success first.
Project Leadership is about helping Project Teams deliver transformational change without any positional authority. To do this efficiently and cost-effective and to achieve near 100% adoption on day one, Project Leaders need to employ Project and Change Management best practices AND great leadership techniques.
The 120VC online Project Leadership Program (PLP) provides how-to instruction on the latest best practices being used by our Professional Services teams to execute enterprise-wide projects for our Fortune 500 clients. It also incorporates the latest thinking in Leadership best practices.
We developed the PLP in collaboration with respected researchers, academics, and subject-matter experts. We curated the program material from hundreds of books, articles, theoretical frameworks, and best practices that represent the best thinking in both the leadership and the project execution communities today.
This online program combines weekly assignments, online learning community interaction, bi-weekly instructor-led classes, and quizzes; the combination of reading, sharing ideas, critical thinking, lecture, and quizzes is meant to reinforce the learning and enable the student to execute upon best practices.
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.

For those who want to lead, and not be led by projects, you'll want this course. After 20 years of managing projects and witnessing hundreds of others attempt to manage projects in the military, my only wish was that this course was mandatory at the start of my career. It is an excellent course focused on leadership and not just management. I left refreshed, focused, and equipped with tangible tools to apply immediately. In some cases, I applied learned knowledge and techniques from this course on the same day I learned them. I highly recommended this course for all service members, project managers, and leaders.
This course was super helpful for any current PM or any individual seeking to become a PM. Content covered emotional intelligence, ways to effectively lead projects, PM best practices, documentation templates, and much more. The course was brilliant overall and Jason was a great teacher. The best part is that the guidebook remains relevant even after the course has completed and I have referred back to it at times to better perform in my current role.
The PLP is a good course, and 120VC is a place for anyone who wants to learn about project management. There is a lot of content that a new person who has no idea about project management can read and learn in this course, which should help them in their future careers. The weekly readings and videos also have good material that helps with the ideas that are being discussed in class during a particular week and then discussed again in the webinars. The weekly assignments and forums also allow students to interact with each other and discuss these ideas further. Also the different templates used in everyday project management is a winner and a very good idea and 120VC has done good there too because a lot of people don’t know what is required and how they should interact during an ongoing project and people can familiarize themselves about the actual type and form of communication that is required in project management situation. I think these templates are great help and take the thinking out of it. And finally I think 120VC has collected a lot of content that helps people who don’t know anything about project management learn about the basics and principles of good project management. It’s good starting point for beginners. But you have to read all the material to benefit from it.
