Abso: Project Management

Abso refines project management

Company

Abso delivers fully integrated highly automated talent management and background screening services to businesses of all sizes via the web. Its services include hosting corporate career websites, talent management tools, background and drug screening services, a virtual end-to-end hiring solution. It delivers all the factual, up-to-date information required to make intelligent hiring decisions in the shortest possible timeframe at an affordable cost.

Challenge

Based in Roseville, the fast growing company of 128 employees, has added new products for applicant tracking that require project management and on-going follow-up, explained LeAnn Filbrun, Abso’s Training Manager.

“With teams of people working on projects, Abso needed a consistent system of tracking tasks, assignments, deadlines and completions, and training to use the project management system effectively,” said Filbrun.

Competitiveness

Managers working in the quickly expanding organization all benefited from participating in the project management training.

Customization

“We appreciated the flexibility in scheduling the 14 hours of training,” said Filbrun. The first session was four hours long followed by two hour sessions held every other week. “The participants worked in groups on assignments in between sessions,” said Filbrun. “Part of our training was the planning and implementation of a hypothetical project which helped us to apply the skills we were learning.”

Benefits

Managers reported that that the training was very relevant to their work. “Everyone enjoyed going through the class,” said Filbrun. “They all gained more confidence in their project management skills.”

Evaluation

This is what class participants said – “The training provided a valid, proven method for project management for both short and long-term projects.”

“Similar terminology and communication got all the team members on the same page about how to complete projects.”

“I appreciated learning classic project management methodologies, as well as the instructor's knowledge and use of relevant examples.”

It was valuable to learn the important factors that go into developing a good project plan and how to manage it.”

Results

“The training was very professional and everything met our expectations – quality, content and the instructor. It says a lot when an organization delivers what they promised, I’d recommend Sierra College’s Training & Development program.” LeAnn Filbrun, Training Manager, Abso.
