Project Management Revolution Combines Theory with Psychology and Practice in Industry-First Training Program
The project management field continues to see exponential growth in the United States as well as around the world. By 2027, employers will need nearly 88 million individuals in project management-oriented roles.. However, it is projected that there won’t be enough workers in the industry to meet this continuous demand. There are too many individuals who are unable to secure employment in the industry after graduating from a university or training program just as there are those who have project management careers but are unable to perform their duties successfully.
To bridge the gap between education and application, Nick Stekovic created Project Management Revolution, a 12- to 14-week training program for those who desire real-world experience, want full confidence to master interviews, and are looking to transform their careers as project managers in any industry.
Nick Stekovic is a renowned project management and digital consultant with 17 years of experience managing teams, projects, and portfolios for Fortune 500 companies across nearly all verticals. Through the years, In mentoring and observing project manager degree and cert holders, he realized that there was a large gap between the abilities needed to confidently manage projects and people on day one and what project managers were prepared to do. He also saw time and time again that future PM candidates were not ready for the crucial situation-specific questions asked in interviews.
By creating Project Management Revolution, Stekovic is guiding future generations of to-be project managers to overcome these limitations by offering an industry-first solution: theory combined with practical application, mastery of resume writing and interviewing, and applicable psychology of everyday people and self-management.
His hybrid coaching program begins with the prospective student exploring the process by taking a free masterclass, learning more about Project Management Revolution Program via Nick’s online social media profiles or his YouTube channel. The person then submits an application for evaluation, and, if accepted, will connect with Nick and his team regarding the next steps in the process. The goal is to help the student incorporate studying into their busy life and create a realistic schedule for completing the program and eventually getting hired as a project manager in an organization.
As 90% of project management is people management, the program’s first step focuses heavily on psychology. The student receives a complimentary 35-page insight report on their personality, which will help them to understand how to master interviews, manage the diverse personalities they will inevitably encounter as a project manager, and handle the stress and challenges of the day-to-day job.
While step two involves the same theories taught by PMI, Nick’s students ultimately receive a far deeper explanation of them, one that builds on the importance of personalities and psychology. Students have a more nuanced understanding of the core foundations built on PMI’s Waterfall, Agile, and Hybrid methodologies and are ready for the third step: application.
Using virtually simulated projects, Nick leads his students to apply all three delivery frameworks (Waterfall, Agile, and Hybrid). Practical application is taken a step further through the teaching of Microsoft Project, SmartSheets, JIRA, and Confluence, crucial tools that project managers, and scrum masters must know in order to manage projects from basic to advanced. There is also a weekly live group workshop, where students can ask questions on the program’s materials and graduates can ask follow-up questions.
One especially valuable part of Project Management Revolution is the personal attention that Nick gives to each student, including through 1-ON-1 assistance with resume writing, coaching on how to nail interviews and answer situational questions, and providing numerous online sources for applying for project management positions. The ultimate goal is to maximize each person’s time and help them to avoid common mistakes that slow the job search.
Interestingly, Nick Stekovic is there for project managers once they are hired. “The First 90 Days” contains a checklist with a list of key questions, and templates to follow, all designed to guide students step-by-step so that they can feel secure, manage themselves and other people, and be successful project managers as soon as they land that job.
To help students prepare for the PMP Exam, should they want to take it, Project Management Revolution also provides 35 PDU credits on top of Project Management Revolution’s certificate.
The program has a 100% guarantee that each student will land a project manager job as long as they follow the training closely, attend each weekly Q&A call, and ask questions. Individuals will be reassured by the company’s guarantee that if they do not land a job in the 16-19 week timeframe from the start of the program, Nick will personally coach them until they do.
Project Management Revolution is set up to be a one-stop shop for those who are looking to start their project management careers or pivot into the industry. It provides a new option for individuals who want to combine essential project management theories with practical application, those who want to better understand how to utilize crucial platforms and software, and those who are looking for a deeper understanding of themselves as well as other people.
Project Management Revolution was founded by Nick Stekovic, a 17-year PM veteran who has managed $150MM+ projects and led teams from Deloitte, Accenture, PWC, and CapGemini, among others. Project Management Revolution’s students have gone on to work for leading public, private, and government organizations around the globe. Nick Stekovic will be holding a series of in-person seminars worldwide in 2023, including in Toronto, New York, Austin, Belgrade, and Dubai.
