Become a TBLI in project management

November 15-16 – Fort Lauderdale, Florida

Project management: a survival skill

Project management skills are essential for organizations if they want to survive and thrive . However, project management has become more complex and harder than ever before. Teams are becoming distributed, stakeholder relationships are more sophisticated and richer, and change is a constant rather than the exception.

According to the latest Project Management Institute survey, more than 50% of projects do not comply with the budget or time goals and more than 35% are complete failures.

Part of the problem is the use of linear tools instead of more flexible solutions that let you understand the project both from a global and detail perspective and be able to quickly adapt your plan.

When you use Mind Maps for developing and implementing projects, you increase your effectiveness by 65% according to the research conducted by Dr. Henri Toi in Singapore and Malaysia.

TBLI in project management

You’ll become a Tony Buzan licensed instructor (TBLI) in project management by attending the two-day specialization course. You’ll also reach a senior (1 specialization) or master (2 specializations) Buzan trainer status.

The program provides the tools and processes for teaching your customers (or internal peers) how to manage projects at a world class level by using Mind Mapping combined with other tools such as Gantt charts, backwards planning and agile frameworks.

You’ll guide your customers (internal or external) through the critical steps of the project cycle: from conceptualization to planning, executing, and controlling the project. But significantly better than the traditional linear methods. Following are the main topics that you’ll learn, practice and internalize throughout the certification.

TBLI in project management key themes

Hover your mouse over each topic (or touch the theme on smartphones and touchscreens) to see the description of each theme. The main topics are represented by the branches that radiate from the center of the map (the so-called basic ordering ideas or BOIs) on this Mind Map. There are six BOIs or main topics such as MASTER-MM and INITIATING.

“Thanks for a fantastic class! Usually when I attend a seminar or a class, my expectation is to walk away with 3 key ‘take-aways’. Your TLI course provided me so much more – well worth the investment of both time and money.”
Debbie Long, President and CEO of Strategic Technology Communications
“I feel I can apply this immediately and it will have a meaningful impact.”
Robert Fischer, Director of Portfolio Management, Financial Advisor, Morgan Stanley
“Very honestly: Loved every minute of this experience – feeling like I became a member of a family that I was looking for for ages!”
David Svoboda, GEO Business Manager at Intel
