How the training service works
Our training service provides individuals and organisations with the knowledge and understanding of ‘best practice’ tools and techniques that can be employed across all areas of programme management. The course focuses on reinforcing these tools and techniques to give individuals the ability to manage complex programmes by successfully organising, directing, and implementing transformational change within a business as usual environment.
The techniques covered in the course are directly attributable to the successful management of large cloud hosting and software services through standardises processes and procedures that put benefits realisation centre stage.

The course is delivered by trainers that are MSP accredited, as well as experienced practitioners who have an extensive career history where they have been responsible for delivering projects in both commercial and public sector environments prior to commencing their training career.

Support levels
For each engagement through GCloud, you will be provided with an IMD Account Manager who will be your central point of contact throughout the delivery of services. Where possible, we aim to provide you with an Account Manager who has experience operating within the relevant field associated with the engagement to coordinate the delivery of similar services.
In addition to the Account Manager, we endeavour to provide you with an additional layer of Account Support in the form of a secondary point of contact for each engagement. In this way, we mitigate the likelihood of having a single point of failure, and have mechanisms in place to maintain continuity of service.
Support will be provided remotely via email and phone for the most part, with the flexibility to arrange meetings on site or at our offices when needed. On site support can be offered during the working week where requests are made prior to proposals being submitted / individual call-off contracts agreed.
Your Account Management and Support resources are typically integrated into the delivery team and so costs are included within the proposal for each engagement.
