Pro­ject School

Learn to be a project professional!

Through this on­li­ne Pro­ject School cour­se, our ex­pe­rien­ced te­ac­her Päi­vi Kor­ho­nen int­ro­du­ces you the prac­ti­ca­li­ties of na­ti­o­nal and in­ter­na­ti­o­nal pro­ject plan­ning, imp­le­men­ta­ti­on, mo­ni­to­ring,eva­lu­a­ti­on and ma­na­ge­ment.


The be­ne­fits of pro­ject ex­per­ti­se cyc­le ma­na­ge­ment skills are mul­tip­le.

Pro­ject ex­per­ti­se brings cla­ri­ty and con­sis­ten­cy to doing things – whet­her it is buil­ding a sau­na, de­ve­lo­ping a bu­si­ness, plan­ning events, imp­le­men­ting or­ga­ni­za­ti­o­nal chan­ges, ac­hie­ving le­ar­ning go­als, or imp­le­men­ting per­so­nal chan­ge.

Pro­ject ex­per­ti­se is an easy-to-use tool. With it you can take over the need for chan­ge, work to­wards go­als, and inc­re­a­se the ef­fec­ti­vi­ty and ef­fi­cien­cy of your ac­ti­ons.

The con­tent of the Pro­ject School is ide­al for or­ga­ni­za­ti­ons/in­di­vi­du­als imp­le­men­ting chan­ge, de­ve­lop­ment, re­se­arch and in­no­va­ti­on pro­jects.

The trai­ning  is imp­le­men­ted as an on­li­ne prog­ram. It con­sist of we­bi­nars, writ­ten stu­dy ma­te­ri­als and le­ar­ning as­sign­ments.

Training modules

Pro­ject as a tool – un­ders­tan­ding pro­ject and pro­ject cyc­le

Af­ter comp­le­ting this trai­ning mo­du­le, the stu­dent knows the de­fi­ni­ti­on of a pro­ject, the key con­cepts of pro­ject work, pro­ject life cyc­le thin­king and the most re­le­vant ter­mi­no­lo­gy. He or she re­cog­ni­zes the terms and con­di­ti­ons of a well func­ti­o­ning  pro­ject and un­ders­tands the pro­ject cyc­le.

Pro­ject plan­ning

Af­ter comp­le­ting this trai­ning mo­du­le, the stu­dent un­ders­tands the im­por­tan­ce of pro­ject de­sign throug­hout the pro­ject life cyc­le, the role of the pro­ject plan­ning, risks and risk ma­na­ge­ment, and is able to use
WBS Work Bre­ak­down Struc­tu­re and Lo­gi­cal Fra­me­work App­ro­ach Met­hod as prac­ti­cal tools in pro­ject plan­ning.

Pro­ject imp­le­men­ta­ti­on and ma­na­ge­ment

Af­ter comp­le­ting this trai­ning mo­du­le, the stu­dent knows how to ma­na­ge a pro­ject what is being ma­na­ged in the pro­ject and how the pro­ject is ma­na­ged, and is able to use pro­ject ma­na­ge­ment as a tool for pro­ject imp­le­men­ta­ti­on and ma­na­ge­ment. The stu­dent re­cog­ni­zes his / her own pro­ject ma­na­ge­ment skills, is able to eva­lu­a­te and de­ve­lop them, and un­ders­tands the va­lue of pro­fes­si­o­nal pro­ject ma­na­ge­ment in suc­cess­ful pro­ject imp­le­men­ta­ti­on.

Pro­ject mo­ni­to­ring and eva­lu­a­ti­on

Af­ter comp­le­ti­on of this trai­ning mo­du­le, the stu­dent re­cog­ni­zes the im­por­tan­ce of mo­ni­to­ring and eva­lu­a­ti­on as part of the pro­ject life cyc­le and is able to build a mo­ni­to­ring and eva­lu­a­ti­on struc­tu­re for the pro­ject.


Päi­vi Kor­ho­nen has wor­ked in the pro­ject world for al­most 30 ye­ars. She has taught pro­ject skills to mu­ni­ci­pa­li­ties, fe­de­ra­ti­ons, pro­vin­ci­al fe­de­ra­ti­ons, or­ga­ni­za­ti­ons, uni­ver­si­ties and uni­ver­si­ties of app­lied scien­ces, as well as nu­me­rous Fin­nish and in­ter­na­ti­o­nal com­pa­nies.

She has the in­ter­na­ti­o­nal IPMA Pro­ject Ex­cel­len­ce As­ses­sor cer­ti­fi­ca­ti­on as proof of pro­ject ex­per­ti­se. Päi­vi is also an ex­pe­rien­ced trai­ner of the EU’s PCM Pro­ject Cyc­le Ma­na­ge­ment stan­dard.

To whom?

Pro­ject School is sui­tab­le for pe­op­le and or­ga­ni­za­ti­ons run­ning dif­fe­rent kinds of pro­jects for examp­le in the fields of de­ve­lop­ment, edu­ca­ti­on, in­no­va­ti­on and re­se­arch.

You’ll find all the ma­te­ri­als you need in the on­li­ne le­ar­ning en­vi­ron­ment.
The le­ar­ning com­mu­ni­ty has its own clo­sed group, whe­re the par­ti­ci­pants have the op­por­tu­ni­ty to con­ti­nue the dis­cus­si­on af­ter the we­bi­nars and bet­ween them with the trai­ner.
