Which one should I choose?
Why choose the blended option?
Learn at a less intensive pace than the Live Masterclass, while still feeling ready to face clients by the end of the course. Are you juggling the course with work and/or other responsibilities? The blended course fits neatly into your busy life, giving you more time to complete homework (e.g. drawing process maps) and work with your groups to prepare for skills practice such as client interview workshops. Live calls will take place at different times to accommodate a variety of time zones.
Why choose the live option?
Get started quickly! Learn the fundamentals and build your confidence so you’re ready to meet clients in less than a month. Great for getting a new team up and running and all working together.
Common Project Mistakes case study
Over 11 weeks, we will look at the key areas where real project mistakes can happen through case studies of fictional projects. We’ll discuss each scenario, work out what went wrong and how to stop it happening to your project.
