Dell and the Project Management Institute Irish Chapter today introduced a free Web App to support their PM4LIFE programme, which sees Dell experts provide project management training and skills to non-profit and cultural organisations. To date, a total of 58 organisations have benefitted from the programme which is delivered through six-hour intensive training sessions from Dell’s campus in Limerick.
Denis Kelly, VP Global Consumer Support Services at Dell, officially launched the App, and said:
“Dell is committed to powering the possible both for our customers and for our partners in the communities where we are based. The PM4LIFE programme, developed by our colleagues in Limerick and now also being rolled out by our teams in Cork and Dublin is helping non-profit organizations do more. We are delighted to be able to share our project management skills with as many organisations as possible. The demand for training has been so strong, we are hopeful that the App will help the programme scale as well as continue to provide support and assistance to organisations once they have completed training.”
Speaking today, Verena Tarpey of Rape Crisis Midwest, which has participated in the PM4LIFE programme, praised the impact it is making in streamlining operations and ensuring optimal results.
“A number of colleagues from Rape Crisis Midwest and I attended a PM4LIFE training seminar. The skills that we learned at the seminar have been invaluable to us. It has completely changed the approach that we take to managing our projects and as a result we are saving time and improving the results on everything that we are doing. The Dell team were passionate about helping us and have helped to bring a new way of thinking into the organisation. We have referred the training to many of our colleagues in the not for profit sector as I believe that the skills that Dell are sharing can have a profound impact on the delivery of services to people in need across a whole range of organisations,” said Ms Tarpey.
The team at Dell developed this Web App, which has been specially optimised for smartphone use, as a supplement to the PM4LIFE programme. The App contains course content which will facilitate participating organisations in getting the most out of the PM4LIFE training sessions, and in ensuring that the lessons they learn can be put into practice with ongoing reference to this handy electronic guide.
The PM4LIFE Web App will be made available to those who participate in Dell’s PM4LIFE program. Interested organisations should contact [email protected] for more information about participating the programme.
