Additional Info

The role of the project manager professional (PMP) goes far beyond the immediate management of projects. Planning, assigning tasks to the team, controlling the time, resources, quality, and communications, estimating risks and successful closure of a project – all these points are far from being the full list of responsibilities of project managers.

In the end, the project manager is the person who is mostly responsible for either the success or failure of the whole project, and in some cases even the whole business. That’s why advanced and continuous education, such as project management courses and PMP certifications, is not merely an option but an obligation for project managers who wish to execute their projects flawlessly.

There are some skills which are necessary for every project manager, but most project managers overlook them. In addition to the technical aspects, in the Atton Institute’s PMP training course we also review and educate participants on the following subjects, which sometimes might be even more crucial than pure technical skills and knowledge:

  • Integration into the business. A project manager has to find his/her own place in the system, understand the effect of his/her work, and take responsibility for satisfying the client, the team, and the stakeholders. The Atton Institute trainer in this PMP course will share some tips about how to master this skill.
  • Strategic thinking. The ability to see the whole picture of the project is the key to the company's success. The development of strategic thinking is an important topic of our PMP courses.
  • Ability to be tough when it’s required. One should not be afraid to say “No” to a client after making a correct assessment of the time, capabilities, and resources of a company and team. A good project manager does not promise impossible, unrealistic things. This may seem simple and obvious, but a lot of experienced managers make these mistakes again and again.
  • Leadership qualities. People often think that leadership qualities are inherent, and if a person does not have them initially, he or she can never develop them. This is not true, because any skill, including leadership, can be developed and improved. Our specialized PMP course in Dubai, the UAE helps you to improve your leadership skills.
  • Manage the pace of life. Finally, every PMP should be able to manage his/her own time and prioritize tasks effectively according to the specifics of each. This is also a topic covered in our project management training certification course.

As for the UAE, there are limitless opportunities for project managers because the economy keeps thriving, and the number of infrastructural, innovative, cultural and other projects is growing.

Therefore, people are seeking out reasonably-priced yet impactful PMP training courses and certifications in Dubai like never before. At the Project Management Professional course from the Atton Institute, you will receive all the necessary skills and knowledge for a successful PMP career.
