A Letter From the CEO Welcome Welcome to IIL’s 2012 Learning Catalogue! As organizations continue to try and do more with less, there is an increased demand for higher-level skills in strategic leadership, Project and Program Management, Business Analysis, Risk Management, Information Technology and Lean Six Sigma. Many economists are hopeful that we will see some signs of recovery in the near future, but the job market remains more competitive than ever. Building on your knowledge and “polishing your edge” are now not only critical to success… they are critical to survival. In spite of economic difficulties, new technologies continue to change not only the way we work, play and socialize, but also the ways in which we plan, learn and share ideas. The enormous increase in e-book sales, mobile learning solutions and record numbers of tablets, smartphones and 4G devices are just a few signs of the progressive migration, across industries, toward the virtual space. More and more, learning is taking place virtually, globally and collaboratively. People all over the world are connecting online and learning through virtual communities, peer-to-peer networks, mobile devices and social media platforms. In response to our customers’ needs, IIL has doubled our focus on our Virtual Classroom offerings and self-paced on-demand learning products.

PM Core and Intermediate Courses In today’s rapidly changing business environment, project management (PM) has become a core competency for all organizations. Whether you’re in industry or government, you must be able to successfully manage internal projects to stay competitive. The discipline of PM applies constantly evolving principles, concepts, tools and techniques to improve project performance and organizational effectiveness. When properly aligned with company goals and objectives, PM adds value by improving your ability to consistently deliver the right products - on time and within budget - while increasing client satisfaction and employee retention. Projects are complex, collaborative efforts frequently involving the participation of stakeholders from various parts of an organization. To be successful, project managers must not only be knowledgeable of professional best practices - they must also be flexible and adaptable to evolving life cycles, methods, tools and techniques. The same type of project in differing environments may require a customized application of accepted PM principles. The most effective project managers have the ability to make adjustments based on moment-to-moment assessments of current conditions, while operating within the context of a comprehensive plan that makes use of consistent methods and past experience. Project management has become a focal point of internal improvement efforts – particularly those efforts designed to give organizations a competitive edge. To further a company’s capabilities, Project Management Offices and Centers of Excellence are being established, global benchmarking studies are being conducted, and the most successful organiza- tions are focusing on continuous improvement and innovation of their PM practices. The next two sections of our catalogue are dedicated to our wide curriculum on project, program and portfolio management. The PM Core and Intermediate section features courses targeted to those relatively new to the project management profession. In these classes you will learn fundamental PM concepts and hone the skills and techniques needed to ensure successful project outcomes. A standout in this section is IIL’s capstone course, The Project Management Certificate Program: The Kerzner Approach® to Project Management Excellence. It is designed to build your skills and abilities as a project manager, while at the same time preparing you in-depth for the PMI® Project Management Professional (PMP®) exam. PoleStar PM Simulation is a new one-day traditional classroom course that integrates proven learning theory with TM computer technology and game-based simulation to deliver a high-impact, holistic learning experience. For onsite course delivery, simulation training can also be integrated into many of our other courses, accelerating and enhancing your team’s learning experience. Leverage the power of our wholly-owned network of IIL companies, strategically located all over the world. We have deep experience working in different languages, cultures, countries and industries and are proud to be the training solution partner of choice for many top global companies.
