Welcome to Cogent Language!
If you are interested in project know-how, you have come to a good place. We coach managers on leading 21st century projects, adult and university students on entrepreneurship and collaboration, and international school students on systems thinking.
If you are based in Tokyo, this welcome is especially for you. For more than 12 years, we have been in Shibuya, close to many of the young people and professionals who participate in our programs. Our young people are high potential students at universities, international schools, and other organizations oriented toward global careers. Our professionals are typically members of IT, finance, marketing, or HR development teams. Their companies are premier Japanese and multinational firms in the energy, engineering, pharmaceutical, publishing, and online retail industries.
For companies in the Kanto region, we have a portfolio of project-based courses, as well as consulting and customized training. For schools anywhere in Japan, we offer a wide spectrum of services, all with strong emphasis on project-based learning (PBL). For anyone anywhere interested in project know-how, we offer some great topics to explore via our Pinterest site.
What will professional project managers be doing in the next few years? In Tokyo, they will be building the 2020 Olympics; around the world, they will be creating new value for their stakeholders and organizations.
How they'll be doing these things is easier to see now. The new edition of the global standard of the community, the Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge ("the PMBOK® Guide") has just been published. It is the first edition to really leverage agile practices. As such, it reflects major revisions in project management, not only in terms of conceptual knowledge, but also of governance, processes, tools, and techniques.
Cogent Language has designed a systemic overview of this powerful new standard. It's called PMBOK® 6 Walkthru. We are excited to announce that this course is now available. In 2 hours, you and your team can get a preview of how project managers will be approaching their work for the rest of the decade.
