Watch your PMs take back the project wheel

Deliver on your client promises

Watch your margins grow predictably

Your job is not a micro-manager

You’ve invested a ton of time and money to hire solid project managers. Why is it so tough to deliver projects that make your clients happy and keep your team feeling energized?

Processes are inconsistent. Reporting is all over the place. Your team is wasting hours in meetings that go nowhere. You don’t know where project margins and progress are at and constantly feel like you need to step in and save the day, pulling you away from your actual job.

You shouldn’t have to babysit. You have a team of intelligent people. They were just never taught how to build better project management systems using their hearts and their heads.

We’ll teach your PMs how to be stars

The Digital Project Management Foundations course teaches your project managers how to…

Design better processes

Create predictable environments for creativity, flexibility and experimentation.

Improve relationships

Build stronger alignment and set meaningful boundaries and expectations with stakeholders.

Increase project profitability

Use intelligent risk analysis, predictive planning, scoping, scheduling, and capacity management to smooth out cash flow and increase margins

The course we wish we had

Louder Than Ten started as a digital agency in 2009. Our team has delivered thousands of projects as project managers, team leaders, and production staff at other agencies and product companies. We never had quality project management training that applied to the digital work and the agency environments we were working in.

We learned the hard way. And we put all our years of practice and trial-by-fire secrets together and created a course to support all the PMs who are busting their asses out there without a community or a playbook.

Digital Project Management Foundations is the course we wish we had when those complex creative, marketing, and software projects rolled in all those years ago.

200+ students at agen­cies, departments, and prod­uct stu­dios trained

100% designed for dig­i­tal teams

Loud­er Than Ten’s Dig­i­tal Project Man­age­ment Foun­da­tions course had a huge impact on my pro­fes­sion­al growth as a PM, and as a result, on our com­pa­ny as a whole. Our projects are run­ning more smooth­ly and prof­itably, and our clients are notic­ing. I’m grate­ful to be a part of such a col­lab­o­ra­tive com­mu­ni­ty. Kudos to LT10 for all they’re doing to grow and sup­port lead­ers in our industry.

Frequently asked questions

How long is the Dig­i­tal Project Man­age­ment Foun­da­tions course?

The Dig­i­tal Project Man­age­ment Foun­da­tions course fea­tures 9 mod­ules that are taught in real-time over the course of about 3 months.

Who is this course for?

The Dig­i­tal Project Man­age­ment Foun­da­tions course is best suit­ed for junior to inter­me­di­ate PMs, or for any­one who is look­ing for a deep­er under­stand­ing of the project life cycle. It can also be used to onboard a dig­i­tal project man­ag­er with­in a new organization.

Do I need to have for­mal project man­age­ment expe­ri­ence to enroll in the Dig­i­tal Project Man­age­ment Foun­da­tions course?

No — although most of our appren­tices have some degree of project man­age­ment expe­ri­ence, it is not a pre­req­ui­site. It helps to have a work­ing knowl­edge of cre­ative or dig­i­tal skills like mar­ket­ing devel­op­ment, writ­ing, event plan­ning, or design (if you would like to give your­self a head start we rec­om­mend tak­ing a course or two from Super­Hi before enrolling in the Foun­da­tions course. Here’s a refer­ral link for our self-direct­ed intro­duc­to­ry dig­i­tal project man­age­ment course offered in part­ner­ship with Super­Hi). Some of the most pop­u­lar non-PM roles that we see in this course include: 

  • Project lead
  • Man­ag­er
  • Free­lancer
  • Coor­di­na­tor
  • Pro­duc­tion Specialist
  • Design Man­ag­er or Director
  • Devel­op­ment Lead or Director
  • Event man­ag­er
  • Account Man­ag­er
  • Mar­ket­ing Man­ag­er or Strategist

Here it is in short: if you work with clients or on an inter­nal team herd­ing cats, you’ll ben­e­fit from the Dig­i­tal PM Foun­da­tions course.

What does my tuition pay for?

Your course tuition gives you access to week­ly remote train­ing ses­sions, as well as: 

  • Class record­ings for future reference
  • 500+ pages of use­ful course mate­ri­als, guides, and templates
  • 1:1 ses­sions with your train­er for per­son­al development 
  • Exclu­sive esti­mat­ing and pric­ing tools
  • Month­ly AMA (Ask Me Any­thing) events with indus­try experts
  • Access to an active Slack com­mu­ni­ty filled with friend­ly and help­ful peers 
  • Access to exclu­sive project esti­mat­ing and pric­ing tools
