I got to know Oliver F. Lehmann as a magnificent Project Management Trainer.
Projektleiter, Zentrale Serviceorganisation bei Zeppelin Baumaschinen GmbH
Ich habe meinen PMP Prep Kurs bei Oliver durchleben dürfen. Hierbei fiel auf, dass seine Vorbereitungen exzellent aufbereitet sind, viele Fälle durchdekliniert werden. Er hat klare Zielsetzungen, fühlt sich seinen Kunden verpflichtet und steht auch im Nachhinein für Fragen zur Verfügung.
Er bietet damit ein All-Inclusive Paket an, das seinen Vergleich sucht.
Oliver played a key role in the development and rollout of training and coaching to support SAP IT’s project management competency development program.
I would certainly engage again with Oliver in the future should the opportunity arise.

I participated in a PMP exam preparation course led by Oliver Lehmann. The course was conducted by him in an excellent manner. At no time during the course was it just a dry and boring presentation as he always provided good examples from practice.
His training material was excellent and contained very valuable hints for daily project management situations.

Oliver Lehmann delivered beyond our greatest expectations. Throughout the process, his business style was first class, and the results were superb. The client evaluations were so good that on a 1-5 scale one of the clients gave Oliver a 6!
Enough said, I can’t wait for the next opportunity to do business with Oliver. He comes with my highest recommendation.
Thank you, Oliver; unlike other certifications and training that give you theoretical knowledge that you rarely use in real projects – your information is correct and very practical.

Project Management

Consistent success in projects is not a matter of luck or magic.

There is no such thing as a magic wand or a philosopher’s stone in project management. Success comes from the unwavering dedication of skilled professionals with expertise in the field.

With the possibility of failure looming, investing in a project can seem daunting. However, with skilled project managers, exceptional results can be achieved even in the face of adversity.

I bring decades of experience as a practitioner and instructor and equip your people with the skills, tools, and techniques to navigate your project to the outcomes you rightfully expect.

Managing Project Business

Partnership and trust are vital in Project Business. But be ready for challenges, when relationships turn sour.

Project Business takes place when a project is done with a customer and one or more—often many more—contractors. It is high-risk business.

However, organizations have a powerful asset: Well-educated project managers.

On the contractor side, they must ensure:

  • The happiness of the paying customer
  • The profitability of the customer project
  • Your organization’s financial health

On the customer side, their goals are:

  • Reliable vendor performance
  • VIP-grade service
  • Agility of the supply network

Their determination and fitness for the job are the most vital factors for the success of organizations involved, and here is the good news: To grow their proficiency, they are not alone.


Certifications for Project Managers

Contractors with certified Project Managers win better business at higher rates/prices. In internal projects, signaling professionalism solidifies the standing of Project Managers.

Indeed, the business case for a corporate certification initiative to signal professionalism is simple and compelling.

However, to make the best out of your certification initiative, you need a trainer who can lead busy project managers to succeed in the exam. For project vendors and service providers, the trainer must be able to translate the internal nature of most certifications to the more complex world of project business.

I prepare project managers for the established certifications of PMI, the Project Management Institute, and the new credentials of the Project Business Foundation.
