Top-fit for Demanding Projects
Certification for ZAHORANSKY Project Managers according to IPMA Standard

Zahoransky Project Manager 072715In view of increasing project volume, we have made an active investment in the further qualification and certification of our project managers. No less than nine of our employees did a six-month course while working full time, and learned how to successfully manage even large and complex projects easily and confidently. A sound investment in the efficiency and reliability of large-scale projects at the headquarters in Todtnau as well as in the Systems Technology and Mold Making business divisions in Freiburg.
Complete training with internationally recognized certification
Not every project management training course keeps what it promises. So we decided in favor of the internationally recognized IPMA standard, which is awarded through the certification office of the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Projektmanagement (GPM – German Project Management). The company is part of the International Project Management Association (IPMA) – a project management association based in Europe with more than 55,000 members in around 50 countries. The course takes an all-round and hands-on approach. It includes project management techniques such as project target planning, phase planning, project structuring and risk management.
Less is more
Using concrete practical examples and tried-and-trusted instruments, solutions are conveyed as to how an organization can improve collaboration and concentrate its human resources on what is really important. After all, professional project management allows costs of between 10 % and 20 % to be saved, and speeds up the processing time. Improved solutions and optimized internal workflows allow more realistic scheduling and cost planning to be prepared and followed. As a result, all those involved benefit from increased reliability, transparency and calculability of the projects and, at the end of the day, from greater economic success.
Human resources as a factor of success
Despite all advances in technology and aids, the central pre-requisite for the success of a project remains the people involved. In this respect, the second focus of the training was on the development of social skills in order to cope with typical project situations. All kinds of relevant subjects were discussed: from leadership and motivation through optimization of team work and dealing with conflicts through self-organization and personal time management to negotiation techniques and the implementation of meetings and presentations.
