If you work in Talent Development, you are more than likely running projects all day every day. These projects may include creating or updating training programs, partnering with your IT department to implement a new technology platform or tool, such as a virtual learning platform or a learning management system (LMS), or overseeing an organization-wide learning initiative, such as a leadership development program. As talent development continues to grow and change to meet learner needs, having a systematic project management approach enables you to successfully oversee projects with increasing complexity and greater impact.

Regardless of the type of project, every learning project needs a strong project manager who is skilled in developing and managing timelines and budgets, setting priorities, minimizing risks, and gathering stakeholder input. The benefit of this certificate program is that it introduces you to core project management skills and shows you how to apply those skills specifically to a TD environment through examples and hands-on activities. As a result, you'll be able to manage learning projects more efficiently through systematic, repeatable, and adaptable processes tailored to our field. Whether you work within a talent development department or organization or as an independent consultant, becoming a skilled and capable project manager makes you a valuable asset to the team you support.

Why You Should Attend:

  • Learn established project management approaches and how you can apply them to a TD context.
  • Become a skilled project manager who can take on and manage any learning project with ease.
  • Practice project management tasks throughout the program in your own personal project.
  • Get proven techniques to stay ahead of and solve issues quickly when managing projects large and small.
  • Gain access to ATD-exclusive templates and tools that you can apply to your own work.
  • Earn an ATD digital badge to share your course completion with your networks.

What Our Participants Are Saying
Helene_Bryant
Helene Bryant

"My favorite takeaways from this program were the advice that a project is not a task, it is a series of tasks; you must learn from other learning professionals; and how to properly structure a project. This program helps you step back and reflect on how you work."

JG
Jennifer Quan

"The entire program was amazing, but I appreciated the fact that we were able to choose a project of our own and create a project plan around it. This program gave quick, but thorough, instruction on project management for trainers—enough information to get individuals started on the right path of project management, but not enough to overwhelm."

Shauna_Herman
Shauna Herman

"I enjoyed this program because I work in a training role and wanted a project management program that aligned with the needs of training development. The tools and program materials are excellent resources. The facilitator was very engaging and gave us some real nuggets of wisdom to apply on the job."
