REP Program

The ProChain Quick Start Program is a hands-on training program designed to provide you with the knowledge, methodology, and software tools needed to create realistic, credible project plans. You will also learn to manage the week-to-week execution of those plans, providing team members with a clear, prioritized lists of their assignments and providing leadership with honest, credible project status.

Being a project manager doesn’t have to be that hard. Using our critical chain methodology, supporting software tools, and a real-world case study with lots of hands-on simulations our experienced implementers will teach you how to:

  • Develop realistic, credible project plans;
  • Identify week-to-week which tasks are truly “key” to successful project completion;
  • Get your  team to focus on those priority tasks;
  • Conduct credible what-if analyses to enable proactive project leadership; and
  • Report honest status and progress to your team and your management.

Our field-tested Quick Start program includes:

  • Three preliminary web sessions;
  • Four days of dedicated classroom instruction;
  • Three follow-up web sessions;
  • Three months of access and support for one person for our desktop ProChain Project Scheduling software;
  • Three months of access and support for up to ten people for our cloud-based ProChain Enterprise software, with options to purchase more; and
  • The materials you'll need to teach and manage your projects using ProChain’s critical chain methodology.

Class sizes are small (6-10 students) and all of our instructors are highly experienced critical chain implementers.
