Browne Jacobson and Nottingham Business School (NBS) at Nottingham Trent University team up on successful project management programme

18 July 2019

15 employees from law firm Browne Jacobson have successfully passed an innovative Chartered Management Institute (CMI) programme on project management run in partnership with Nottingham Trent University Business School.

The participants were made up of a mix of people from across Browne Jacobson’s five office network and included various levels in both legal and support teams as well as some clients.

The programme which launched earlier this year was designed to support the firm in integrating a broad range of project management tools and methodologies into its everyday working practices and was unique in its practical assessment focus.

Melanie Currie, Deputy Dean at Nottingham Business School, Nottingham Trent University said:

“We are delighted to have designed in partnership with Browne Jacobson a personalised approach to the CMI project management short course.

“Throughout the course colleagues worked in groups on live Browne Jacobson projects, enabling the Project Management learning to be tested and put in practice immediately. This was further tested through the assignment and the final professional discussion.

This more active approach to learning is a hallmark of courses within NBS and we were delighted to co-design and deliver this with Browne Jacobson.”

Claire Stripp, Head of Talent & Knowledge at Browne Jacobson added:

“We are delighted to have worked with the Nottingham Business School on this valuable project which allows us to continue investing and upskilling our diverse talent base.

“The innovative approach to assessment is a real game changer to enabling our people to gain additional, high quality qualifications that are practical and fit with their busy working lives’.”

Thomas Howard who is a partner at the firm and specialises in the investment and healthcare sectors participated in the course and said:

“Having worked on real estate projects throughout my career it was fascinating to have the opportunity to properly explore project management theory and its practical application.

“Developing existing skills and insights to a higher level will not only allow for more efficient management of our own teams but, more importantly, ensure we fully understand the project management systems adopted by our clients, and their other advisors. This will allow us to best integrate our contribution to achieve an efficient and successful outcome.

“Browne Jacobson always looks for innovative ways to develop employees at all levels to deliver exceptional client service - this initiative with Nottingham Business School exemplifies that.”

Nottingham Business School at Nottingham Trent University is internationally known as one of UK's top business focused schools providing education and research in business, management and economics that combines academic excellence with impact on business and society.
