Test: Are you ready for project management?

Whether you are a new or an experienced project manager, you may need to add to your toolbox in order to plan, lead and manage projects – Mannaz’ Project Management Training gives you the tools you need.

If you are contemplating starting Mannaz’ Project Management Training, you can test yourself below and gain an insight into your starting point. Should you start off by taking the training’s first module, Project Management 1, or should you go straight to Project Management 2?

On Project Management 2 and Project Management 3 you are required to have some knowledge of tools and methods as well as an overview of the project working method. This knowledge corresponds to what you learn on Project Management 1. However, you can also participate if you have gained that knowledge and experience from a different context.

Test yourself and obtain a self-evaluation of your project management skills. You can use this evaluation as your point of orientation to find out if you are an expert at managing projects or if there are any gaps that you could benefit from filling by completing Project Management 1.

About the self-evaluation test

The test consists of 21 statements that you give a score of between 1 and 5, depending on how much you know about the topic of each statement. The total score will indicate whether Project Management 1 is the best starting point for you.

2. I recall what the topic is about, but there are some gaps in my knowledge
3. I have some insight into the topic and only a few gaps in my knowledge
