How the training service works
IMD's Programme Management training provides delegates, and their sponsoring organisations, with the skills, knowledge and ‘best practice’ tools and techniques for 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 when planning for, migrating to or managing cloud hosting or software systems and services within a business as usual environment.
The techniques covered are directly attributable to successful management of large cloud hosting and software programmes by standardising processes and procedures to put benefits realisation at the centre.
IMD’s training courses are delivered by accredited trainers, who are experienced practitioners in their fields. They will have had an extensive career, responsible for delivering projects in both commercial and public sector environments. Most courses are accredited and provide internationally recognised qualifications.
Training is delivered in a relatable, interesting and engaging manner that suits a mix of learning styles and can be tailored further for specific customer requirements.

Support levels
IMD provides consultancy support across all SFIA grades, with prices detailed on the supplied Rate Cards.
For each engagement, we provide a Technical Account Manager who will be the central customer point of contact. The Account Manager will have experience operating within the relevant field and of coordinating the delivery of similar services. This provides additional domain knowledge and support to the delivery team, a first point for escalation of issues, and added intelligence and continuity across projects and programmes. The Technical Account Manager will ensure administrative or contractual queries are actioned and resolved, including the need for any additional specialist support.
In addition, we endeavour to provide a secondary point of contact for each engagement to ensure continuity of service and support.
Depending on the particular assignment, support will be provided on-site, or remotely via email and phone, with the flexibility to arrange meetings on site or at our offices. On-site support will normally be between 8 am and 6 pm, Monday to Friday, excluding Public Holidays. Support outside these hours can be arranged by negotiation. Technical Account Management and support will normally be integrated into the delivery team. Costs are included in the proposed price for each engagement.
