Project Leadership Program

The Project Leadership Program (PLP)

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.

About PLP

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.

"Jason Scott is an excellent teacher and has project managed at the highest levels of corporate America. This course is a masterclass in understanding how to succeed in those environments and it's loaded with excellent readings, videos, and other materials that you will refer back to (and can use to impress your colleagues) for the rest of your career."

"By the end of this course, I developed a new confidence in my ability to lead. I finally found the people who care about others as human beings and not just as potential profits and losses. The great twist here is that leading in this way creates incredibly functional, productive teams and the best outcomes for all stakeholders. Being able to sleep at night feeling good about my interactions with others AND being a successful Project Leader? I’ll take it! I am 100% sold on the 120VC way."

A program with substance!

What I really like about this course is the 4-way intersection Project Management, scientific research on leadership, inspirational content and participation.

You will be given a sound plan and set of PM techniques, but alas what is it all worth when problems arise, teams are not functioning or you have difficult stake holders. That is where this program excels. The introduction of inspirational content, supported by scientific research really brings home how to manage thru the challenges.
The intersecting part that really helped me to commit my learnings to memory is the participation. Group members participation is high and the valuable insights really open thoughtful conversation. Not on some classes, but the entire course. It has substance. You will look forward to each weeks content and the homework!

A Transformative Experience

It's a journey, this course. With the quality of insight that is provided in this class, students have every opportunity to deepen their understanding of team dynamics, human psychology, and change leadership. But more than a bunch of "nice-to-know" information, this course dives courageously into HOW principles of leadership can best be applied within an organizational context.

There isn't any "busy work" - because the course acknowledges that the students are already very busy. The assignments are extremely thoughtfully curated from a mix of sources, including plenty of original content on both leadership principles as well as Project Management. If you're facing challenges in your job, chances are you'll see those challenges in an entirely new light as you progress through this course.

At this level of immersion over many weeks, I can't easily un-learn what was covered in this class. And if I do forget something, I can easily refer back to the cloud-based archives and view the invaluable group discussion that took place on any given topic. It's a journey, it's challenging, and it's worth it for anyone looking to deepen their understanding of the world.

Empower your inner project manager!

I highly recommend this course.

The dual focus on technical aspects of project management seamlessly weaved in with scientific and inspirational content on leadership, makes this a valuable experience for both beginner and advanced project managers or anyone interested in successful projects or leadership in general.

The course content is obviously built on insight from practical experience, by someone that has mastered and cracked the code on typical challenges a project manager would face. The techniques offered are simple and elegant and clearly link the purpose of each project management activity with practical tools and steps that bring the purpose to life. At the same time, the leadership focus transcends the project management tools and techniques and reminds us that leadership is everyone's concern and about people not tools.

You don't have to become a convert to benefit from the course, but be warned the ideas presented are contagious and I am sure will leave a lasting effect.
