Effective project management skills are a key to business success
Effective project management is a key skill needed by growing businesses. Too often major projects going off the rails leading to major cost over-runs, delays and serious impacts on the ongoing business of our clients. Very often these problems are due to failure to follow the basic rules of good project management. Therefore the TXM are excited to introducing the internationally recognised Countdown program, which introduces the key elements of effective project management in a practical and fun way through use of a simulation.
What is Countdown?
A one day Project Management Workshop – Countdown is coming to strengthen your project management capabilities on the following dates:
- Vic 22 June 2016
- Qld 14 July 2016

- NSW 3 August 2016
Participants engage in an interactive project simulation
Countdown is a powerful, high-involvement project simulation in which teams assume roles at a fictional company with a critical need to improve their project management processes. Participants are quickly involved in a project which includes working with a Gannt Chart, estimating delays and costs, evaluating critical paths, assessing project risks and making decision trade-offs. The result is an engaging, fast-paced and relevant learning experience that really works.

- Project leaders who wish to strengthen their project management leadership.
- Technical specialists, engineers, finance staff and IT personnel who critically contribute to projects.
