”The iconic Benjamin Franklin flying a kite in a storm above Philadelphia discovered not only electricity in lightning at that moment, but also sparked an innovation revolution that flows like a current to this day through the inventions of the electric battery, telegraph, light bulb, television, transistor, computer, email, internet, mobile phone, robot, electric car... And that was only one moment in Franklin’s remarkable life as a scientist, inventor, printer, political leader, diplomat, and one of the Founding Fathers of the United States.” – Patrick S. Bennett, PLP Alumni
The PLP is meant to educate and ignite a movement. A movement that will elevate the practices of leadership, teamwork, and humanity in the workplace, maximize human potential and accelerate innovation.
Benjamin Franklin didn’t just drive change as a leader; he ignited it!
Project Leadership Program Description
Leaders drive change; they push the human race forward. Leaders inspire those around them to reach for greatness. Great leaders prove that extraordinary leadership doesn’t require official authority, it just requires that we put our team members success first.
Project Leadership is about helping Project Teams deliver transformational change without any positional authority. To do this efficiently and cost-effective and to achieve near 100% adoption on day one, Project Leaders need to employ Project and Change Management best practices AND great leadership techniques.
The 120VC online Project Leadership Program (PLP) provides how-to instruction on the latest best practices being used by our Professional Services teams to execute enterprise-wide projects for our Fortune 500 clients. It also incorporates the latest thinking in Leadership best practices.
We developed the PLP in collaboration with respected researchers, academics, and subject-matter experts. We curated the program material from hundreds of books, articles, theoretical frameworks, and best practices that represent the best thinking in both the leadership and the project execution communities today.
This online program combines weekly assignments, online learning community interaction, bi-weekly instructor-led classes, and quizzes; the combination of reading, sharing ideas, critical thinking, lecture, and quizzes is meant to reinforce the learning and enable the student to execute upon best practices.
There are two weeks of assignments and learning community interaction between each online instructor-led class. Each week’s assignments should take 2 – 3 hours weekly. There is a total of 8 two hour instructor-led classes, the entire program is 14 weeks.

I work in Talent Acquisition and hire for Project Managers. This course has transformed my understanding of PM and everything that goes into it! Jason has a way of engaging the class to create a professional yet family-like environment. I highly suggest the PLP to those who are: Interested in PM, New in PM or PM Professionals looking for a breath of fresh air and an exciting and modern methodology!
I learned so much and had a fantastic experience during my time in the PLP Addams cohort. The leadership discussions were lively and were the highlight of my week. They touched on some new ways of thinking about leadership that I'd never come across in any other class. This course gave me a whole new perspective on the best way to motivate and lead my project teams, and the homework gave me a superior refresher on the basics of project management.
Just completed the 120VC Project Leadership Program (PLP) led by inspiring CEO and company founder, Jason Scott. Having gone through similar training before as an Eagle Scout, Army ROTC, EMBA, PMP, and senior technology executive, I can attest the 120VC program is the “best of the best” training in leading Transformation you will ever undertake – from one of the top Project Portfolio and Change Leadership consultancy firms. Embrace change!
I have been in the IT field for about 20 years and have taken hundreds of training courses (Instructor-led and online). The PLP course is way beyond the most superior training course I have ever attended. This one is Instructor-led with a combination of video clips, great articles including Harvard Busines Review and sections from the Irreverent guide to project management, composed beautifully into 2-hour classes (Not too long, not too short), which is perfect for learning. This training is delivered by the best instructor, who is also a true servant leader. He will take you into this journey that you will not feel boring at all and you will be engaged the entire session.
This training is not just about managing the project but also about building your leadership skills. I have not seen any other training course which provides practical guidance (not just the theory) on project management and improves your leadership skills. Once you sign-up and attend, you will not regret it. Also, you'll get to network with other students, who will provide feedback on your journals during the class. .
The audience of this course is also hybrid (120vc employees, clients, and potential candidates). Overall course is divided into 14 weeks, and you will have assignments in between. Basecamp is used for assignments, which is very helpful and most of the companies are using it. So, you will learn the tool (basecamp) in addition to increase your knowledge of Project Management and Project Leadership. .
You will have a lot of fun as well.
This class was awesome! I have been doing this for 22 years and this class created a whole new perspective to have dialogue and create desirable outcome. It was quite motivational. Leadership and communication is not always built into our DNA but we can develop these skills and perform in a different tier that sets a few apart from the rest. This course is designed to do that.
Jason Scott is a great instructor and leader in this field. I strongly recommend this class.
No matter your experience or training, and all the other certifications you've acquired over the years, your leadership toolbox needs to make room for this dynamic tool. Providing a mixture of group sessions, individual study and ongoing exchanges with your peers, this class can open your eyes, and mind, to new thoughts, challenges and opportunities to raise your bar and polish your skills in leadership and relationship building. Invaluable for Project Managers and any other leader that needs to get things done through and with others. Invest yourself into this offering and see what a difference it can make. Oh, and ditto on all my Jefferson cohort's remarks in June earlier this year! Thanks to each of them for their awesome contributions to the group!
I am not a Project or Product Manager by trade, I have, however, been a part of multiple $MM software implementations and have been able to quickly identify both solid and poor project management. So, how did this course help me?What sets the great Project Managers apart from the rest is that they are Project Leaders, they manage their projects with purpose and desire to have the team succeed and because of this the team and organization get behind them in this goal.Whatever your level or tenure in Project Management, whether you support and practice Agile, KanBan, Lean Six Sigma or traditional Enterprise Project Management, this course will provide you with many "a-ha" moments and nuggets of wisdom that you can quickly begin using in your day to day environment to help drive better results in you and your team.This course helped me become a better leader in my work and personal environment. It gave me a better understanding of how to approach people, situations, and Business. These skills can be applied to any career, but they definitely will help Project/Product Managers become those Project Leaders that truly deliver, day after day for their organization.
I've been a project manager for 20+ years, and this is the best course I've ever been through for thoughtful, practical, and respectful applications of knowledge and skills that this discipline requires to be successful. If anyone is wondering whether to take this course, be assured that not only is it worth it, you will be championing both the course and the content to all your peers and managers. Jason is a great teacher, highly engaged, positive motivator, and clearly shows expertise in the subject of leading through communication and all the ways it can be demonstrated and applied.
The course is very insightful, light-weight, and fun. I'm glad I have had the chance to take this training as it triggers a lot of self-reflection and provides hands-on materials to use during project planning and implementation. It only requires a couple hours on the weekend and in the afternoons, so it is a manageable commitment. Areas for improvement are material quality (verbiage, format) and an opportunity for more (small) exercises. The greatest strength of the program? The focus on people being people, not machines or emotionless robots. My most valuable take-away was the reference to the "happiness" formula which will now influence my leadership decisions.
I loved everything about the Online Project Leadership Program (PLP). The mix of reading, videos, and actual human interaction with course mates and the instructor created the perfect learning environment. Jason Scott, 120VC’s founder, is on fire with passion for ethical, compassionate, emotionally intelligent leadership. The 120VC PLP is the result of his years of experience on the front lines of leadership. He walks the talk and loves every minute of it. You can feel it in his classes, and it is contagious.By the end of this course, I developed a new confidence in my ability to lead. I finally found the people who care about others as human beings and not just as potential profits and losses. The great twist here is that leading in this way creates incredibly functional, productive teams and the best outcomes for all stakeholders. Being able to sleep at night feeling good about my interactions with others AND being a successful Project Leader? I’ll take it! I am 100% sold on the 120VC way.
