Latest Update: 18.3.2017

*** This course is constantly being updated -> 3-4 new lectures every month! ***

BEWARE: This course is not for everybody! Join the course and learn a complete new approach to project management which is totally different from memorizing hundreds of pages in a text book that often won't help you at all. If you want to hear an honest aproach which is proven in dozens of projects (which I personally finished since 2007) then this is your course.

The course is designed to save you hundreds of hours being frustrated with the traditional project management methods. Especially if you figured out already that PMP, PRINCE2 and IPMA certifications will not necessarily help you reach project milestones because most of the classical methods are either not really applicable or you are not told how exactly to use them.

The key of successful project management is not memorizing dozens of models and processes: the key is organizing yourself while motivating and communicating with others.

This course is designed to give you genuine advice and tools to set up your projects and deliver them on time and in quality. I will tell you enough of my best practices to outperform most traditional project managers you know.

I have been a project manager for around 10 years and delivered dozens of projects on time and in quality. I also took many classes / am certified on project management (PRINCE2) and other areas of expertise (i.e. ITIL, TOGAF). 

However, the problem is that I see huge gaps between theory and practice. In other words: In the seminar everything seemed so practical and later it turned out it's not.

This course is for Project Managers, Developers, Managers, Software Engineers, Team Leads as well as Team Members who want to substantially succeed in their project work.

Who is the target audience?
  • People who are fed up with standard project management tools and methods.
  • Project managers or members who tried the book methods before (i.e. MS Project / Gantt charts as 'problem solvers') and figured out they often won't work or at least don't solve the actual problems.
  • Someone who wants to understand the team dynamics which often are the main cause of issues in projects.

Complexity Made Simple

Hi!

Do you know that feeling one day ahead of vacation when you sort out your
projects, send overdue emails and suddenly get a lot things done? For me every day should be as successful as that! And I would like to share enough knowledge with you to make that happen.

I work as a project manager, entrepreneur and management consultant for more than 15 years. I love to deconstruct systems, improve processes and bring projects to success (and did that already for various customers all over Europe).

Currently I work full time as a project manager and process expert. My daily business it to make things faster and manage multiple things at the same time.


I am into time- and self management. I love improving myself and assist others in working faster and with better results. 

In the past decade I studied various resources about time management, project management, and self management. Doing that I came to the conclusion that 80% of the common "self management tips" do not work as promised. That's why I developed invented my own system for being as productive as possible.
