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.
This slide deck is designed for P3.express 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.
A successful training course is one that enables the participants to start using P3.express in their projects the next day and enjoy the benefits of having a structured project management system.
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.
This package contains the following:
- Slides: There are about 500 slides (many of them are transitional). They are designed to work well on large screens or projectors in classrooms as well as on computer screens for online courses.
- Trainer notes: Some slides have notes for trainers (in total, an equivalent of 25 pages of A4 text). The trainer is expected to read them well before the course and not need them during the course.
- Gapped handout: It’s optimized for black-and-white print, and to be used by learners when following the slides and explanations of the trainer. The handout contains many gaps, and the learner is supposed to fill in the information, which helps them in their learning process. Ensure proper preparation:
- In-person courses: Print and bind the handouts beforehand and give one to each learner along with a blue and a red pen.
- Online courses: Give learners a copy of the handout a few days before the course, and ask them to either print them or be prepared to use a PDF viewer with easy-to-use annotation features.
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 P3.express 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 P3.express first and then using it as a foundation for teaching various techniques and exploring other extra content.
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: email@example.com
This slide deck is available in PDF and ODP:
- The PDF versions are reliable and easy to use. For this purpose, you’d better use a PDF viewer with presentation mode; a good example is Okular. The downside of this format is that you can’t view the slides and the trainer notes simultaneously. Here are the files:
- The source files can be used to make changes to slides or used for playback with a traditional presentation application. While Microsoft PowerPoint and Google Slides can open these files (ODP format), some of the graphics in them are incompatible with those applications, and it’s best to install and use LibreOffice instead. Here are the files:
The slide deck is still a draft. Changes will be tracked after the final version is released.
