Get a clear path from concept (Point A) to launch (Point B). Use this graphic to quickly communicate the entire process to all stakeholders and contributors. Each square represents a specific set of management tasks and activities to complete.
For example, the mouse icon represents 50+ Tasks and 150+ Activities to complete in a typical eLearning project. See why you can’t just wing it or try to remember all of the steps? Save time simply tracking them all in the ready-to-use color-coded Checklists and Timeline & Milestones spreadsheet.
According to the PMI, “Expert NON training estimates are optimistic, on average = 30% under-estimation.” Can you afford to under-estimate on your project hours and ask for more project money? Get the Project scoped out properly first..
Project Management Institute (PMI)
“Elearning projects are at a high risk for delays and cost overruns because they’re complex to manage.”
“Only 2.5% of companies complete all the projects they set out to do, and about 1 in 6 projects had a cost overrun of 200% or more.”

Say GoodBye to SWAG
According to PMI, “A realistic estimate is one of the most important conditions for a successful project.”
Get your project scoped, the Timeline & Milestones and Statement of Work completed and signed off in the Design Phase before accepting training development bids. Use a two-contract system to save on production costs and avoid costly re-work. Be successful, Get your team prepared with the efficient eMA Bootcamp program.
What are SWAG Bids?
SWAG is a slang term for Silly Wild A$$ Guesses that training companies use to inflate project costs.
SWAG bids take advantage of inexperienced project managers who often have lots of re-work. To cover for unknown extra hours training companies puff up bids by adding thousands of extra dollars to ensure they still make a profit. Can you blame them? But you don’t have to pay for SWAG, once you know how to avoid it FOREVER.
How do you stop SWAG Bids? It’s easy… We teach you how to implement a two-contract project system. It’s easy and is just one of the ways eMA Bootcamp teaches you and the TEAM how to work smarter not harder.
Save time, money, your weekends, your career, and your sanity on your next eLearning Project.
