German IT services firm Gedas AG is standardising methods used by its global project managers through electronic learning. The programme aims to familiarise 1,000 staff from 12 nations with the firm's g2LEAD approach to project management. 'We wanted all our project managers to have the same quality of training,' says Jamshid Shabani, head of the firm's corporate university, Gedas Academy. 'E-learning was one of the most convenient methods, and the production costs were lower,' he adds. By the end of 2003, Gedas aims to have put a total of 440 staff through the first module of the course, which was piloted in late 2002.
