Enabling you to deliver projects with more impact and less effort

Today, APMG and Half Double Institute are launching a transformational training and certification programme, which will increase the speed and impact of organizations’ projects.

Half Double training and certification will teach candidates simple tools and practices to enable changes to be executed faster and generate more benefits. The certification aims to address the dismal success rate of projects, with only 30% being deemed successful*. It is based on the methodology developed by Half Double Institute, a non-profit foundation. Working in conjunction with three universities and 2,500 of the best project managers in Denmark, Half Double Institute’s radical new methodology was created after comprehensive research identified key concepts that any organization can use to deliver more impactful projects in less time.

Niels Ahrengot, one of the founding fathers of Half Double, said

“We are excited to be launching a global training and certification programme today – this will help us fulfil our aim of increasing the success rate of projects through making our methodology available to a wider audience. Organizations that have already adopted our methodology have discovered they can implement changes quickly and start generating return on investment earlier.”

Richard Pharro, CEO of APMG,

“Whether your organization is rolling out new products and services, improving customer experiences or business productivity - Half Double Institute’s methodology will transform the way you work. Their methodology is based on extensive research and, when used, some organizations have tripled their project success rates. This training and certification enables organizations to create real impact with each and every project they deliver and is a great addition to APMG’s world renowned portfolio of products.”

Half Double ‘Ignite’ training sessions, which are followed by a Foundation exam, launched today. These are immediately available through the Accredited Training Providers Implement Consulting Group and IBA and will be available through APMG’s global network in the coming months. Both the founders of Half Double Institute and APMG International are looking forward to launching Boost and Masterclass training levels later in 2021.
