"The most useful training I've received in my career."

3 days, in-person or virtual

Delivering Fast Effective Projects (FEP) focuses on applying problem structuring and project management tools to support fast and effective project delivery in public services. Suitable for policy and delivery professionals alike, participants learn and practise a range of structured tools and approaches to navigate demanding project environments and achieve results.

Our facilitators are all experienced consultants at The PSC who use these tools and approaches on a daily basis with their public service clients.

The course is highly interactive, and covers the following modules:

  • Module 1 – Launching the project
  • Module 2 – Structuring the problem & planning the work
  • Module 3 – Engaging stakeholders
  • Module 4 – Developing hypotheses
  • Module 5 – Gathering data & conducting analysis
  • Module 6 – Gathering data & interviewing
  • Module 7 – Using continous improvement methods (Plan-Do-Study-Act)
  • Module 8 – Appraising options & carrying out modelling
  • Module 9 – Developing insight & making recommendations
  • Module 10 – Implementing the project
  • Module 11 – Communicating recommendations & closing the project

This course can be supplemented by a follow-up mentoring programme which supports participants to practically apply the tools and approaches in their day-to-day work - and to help other colleagues do the same.

You can find further details about the individual modules and course materials below.

"Our staff really enjoy FEP and gain a lot of valuable skills, tools and experience during the week. We aim to mirror the interactive elements of this training in our own learning and development in the team."


Heather Watson-Humphreys, Deputy Head of Operations, Projects Task Force, Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO)

"I really enjoyed FEP and found the three days incredibly helpful. The sessions were excellently structured, paced and delivered, and the mix of presenters was engaging... I have already made use of a number of the frameworks explored as standalone tools, and am looking forward to applying the full FEP method to my next project! "


Niamh Mac Namee, Chief Operating Officer, Patchwork Foundation

"I will be using these tools in the future - I wish I had done this training earlier."


Julian Gladwin, PMO Business Development Officer, City Health Care Partnership

"I thought that all three facilitators were superb. Really enthusiastic, fun and engaging. Really enjoyed the role play situation, and I felt I left with lots of bits of new knowledge, from products, to interview skills, to Excel training. Thanks very much for a really engaging three days."
