Standard Slide Deck

Status: Draft

This page provides trainers with an optional standard slide deck they can use in their courses. Note that this slide deck is a draft; the final version will be released later.

Target audience

This slide deck is designed for trainers.

These slides are designed to be used with the presence and guidance of a trainer. Therefore, we don’t recommend using them for learners who want to self-study. If you’re a learner, you can read the manual and use the eLearning course instead.

Training goal

A successful training course is one that enables the participants to start using in their projects the next day and enjoy the benefits of having a structured project management system.

Training duration

This slide deck is designed for a one- to two-day course. You can use it for courses that are a few hours shorter or longer without changing the slides, but for courses that are much shorter or much longer, you’d need to adjust the slides.

Included content

This package contains the following:

Options for trainers

Using these slides is optional; trainers can use any set of slides for their courses or conduct hands-on workshops instead.

Adding hands-on exercises

If you have enough time to cover hands-on exercises in your course, you can use the scenario and guidance provided in the instructor-led workshops guide.

Combining with other material

This slide deck is focused on teaching and giving participants a system they can use in their projects. Some trainers have longer courses and want to add extra content (e.g., different techniques for facilitation, prioritization, and scheduling). In that case, we don’t recommend adding the additional content throughout the course because that would make it too complicated for the audience. Instead, we recommend teaching first and then using it as a foundation for teaching various techniques and exploring other extra content.

Usage license

This slide deck is provided with a Creative Commons Attribution license, meaning that you can use, adapt, and distribute it for commercial and non-commercial purposes with proper attribution without asking for permission.


This slide deck will be continuously revised based on trainers' feedback. Therefore, it’s a good idea to download the latest version of the deck before delivering each course.

We’ll maintain a changelog at the bottom of this page to make it easier for you to keep track of those changes. Note: There won’t be a change log for the draft version, and tracking starts after the final version is released.


This slide deck will be improved based on the feedback from trainers such as yourself, and we’re looking forward to hearing back from you on how the slides worked in your course, what could be improved, etc. You can email us your feedback:
