Case Study 2 – Individual

Case study

Initial Situation

Due to the sanitary crisis in 2020, a project manager with over 10 years of field experience, found herself laid-off and was struggling to find a new job. She has had a couple of job interviews, but although the companies valued and appreciated her profile and experience, they all made the same remark, she was not a certified project manager. She decided to do some research about the different certifications and came along the two major ones in Switzerland – PMP® and IPMA®. As she was aiming to retake a position in an international organization, she decided to pursue the PMP® certification. She made an official demand at her unemployment office and the financing of this certification was approved, as it was considered a major asset and door-opener for future employment.

specifications of the demand

1
Blended learning approach where she could benefit from self-learning and instructor-led classes
2

Uncomplicated access to training material

3
Training and communication language should be English
4

Entirely virtual environment in order to train people from different locations

5
Trainer support until the exam

Why STS was chosen

STS offers a public course for the PMP® certification preparation. There are around 14 courses all over the year either face-to-face in Zurich and in Geneva, or candidates can also join virtually. STS being an Authorized Training Partner from PMI®, is able to provide training courses to prepare for the exam and works with coaches who have over 15 years of experience in the exam preparation and are all PMI® certified trainers.
After a first contact, the candidate was able to get all information on the course, the roll-out and the costs. The most interesting aspect for her, was that she would have access to digital learning tools, so she could study at her own pace in between classes. The course consists of 4 days of face-to-face training split into 2 sessions with around 3 weeks in between. This was ideal as she was able to do the course and obtain the certification within one month. Her regional unemployment office already works closely with STS and therefor, the administrative part was quickly done and approved.

Current situation

Thanks to the training, the candidate was able to successfully pass the certification and obtain her PMP® title. She reapplied for a job opening where she already did have an interview in the past, as the position had not been filled since. She got the job and is now working in the PMO of an international company in the pharma-industry.
