I create beautifully designed and crafted step-by-step video training for project managers which I call Masterclasses (Far more powerful than their predecessors called "primers")
But you need to know I have noticed a trend recently - folks who get to know me, want to know how I became financially independent and live my so-called "rockstar lifestyle"
I have never seen myself that way, but over the past two decades I have made the seamless transition from an employee in a JOB (Just Over Broke), to running my own training and consulting business.
This is far more income but lots of travel and still my dependence upon others for my income), to my independent lifestyle where my secret is to create valuable and sought-after products and services that others can access via the Internet - from anywhere in the world!
I work when I like and as often as I like. When not "working" I spend my time with my wife Jude and my dog Rango, usually chilling out in beach front restaurants and bars or trekking with Rango up and around the Montgo Mountain.
When I feel the need to juice up my artistic instincts, I spend happy times noodling and recording with my guitar collection.
What most don´t know, is that I could not have done it without my project management skills - these were the "glue" that allowed me to jettison the constraints that were slowing my financial freedom...and you already have project management skills - right?
Was this an overnight success with little effort and work, and am I a millionaire?
NO to ALL of the above. But I now have an inspired creative and laid back lifestyle with more money than I need. I truly enjoy everyday I wake up and that is good enough for me.

Psssst … Dave ‘007’ Litten here - Greetings from a (not so) secret location in the sun!
After years of working undercover as an IT boffin and project manager in England … for the Americans … I dropped my guard one day and was captured!
Despite it being highly classified information - somehow the mastermind of a huge training company had discovered I was one of a very select underground group who actually had PRINCE2 lecture credentials – so I was bundled into the back of a truck and made an offer I couldn't refuse.
And that’s how, in 1995, I mysteriously disappeared one day only to re emerge, re invented with a new identity, appearing in public … boldly teaching Project Management … LIVE!
However … unknown to my new masters … I was also working on a secret side-project of my own. I had a VISION – a much better system of Project Management training delivery than they had ever imagined. But this time, no one was going to steal my genius ideas!
Frustrated with the quality of the materials I had to present with every day, I just knew I could create a far easier and more structured learning environment for my more renegade and adventurous students.
Thanks to constant vigilance, the end of the nineties saw me secretly publish my first online book for those wishing to master the Project Management methodology … using The Litten Method™
My new method made use of the way we all naturally learn. I had always known that we humans think in pictures, so without permission, I went ahead and harnessed that power by making the learning fun and easy … now using PowerPoint slides full of colourful graphics and videos!
By ‘painting’ the key points into my students brains using simple structured colour graphics sequences, something almost magical happened - I doubled and even tripled my students ability to learn and remember – and they were passing their exams – hundreds of them!
It WORKED. I decided there and then I HAD to break out and go it alone
It was now or never. After months of careful planning, one day I slipped past the HR department, through the main gate, and made my bid for freedom … and never looked back.
I was FREE to create an elegant yet simple series of online project management related VIDEO ‘Primers’ which have since been constantly tweaked and honed to perfection - and this, my ‘magnificent obsession’ has given me a great lifestyle, doing what I love, living large on the Costa Blanca coastline in Spain while helping HUNDREDS of previously overwhelmed PRINCE2 and project management students pass their exams with ease
Today, on this website, I am proud to have over 1200 potential student visits every day, where my Project Management Mastery range is sold in nearly 163 countries and regions across the world.
Back when I was a gun for hire it would cost you £650 a day to have me teach Project Management live, and that was 15 years ago - so even those large and expensive classroom training organisations that you can find in major cities couldn't afford me to teach a room now.
Good news – you CAN hire me as your virtual mentor, to coach you through Project Management using The Litten Method™.
I’m excited to show you a much more practical, step-by-step and cost-effective approach to become accredited in the exciting aspects of project management, so you can grow your career opportunities, promotion and salary increases.
Better yet, I found out how to use my project management skills to give me a financially independent lifestyle and do what I always wanted - to run my own show and never work for a boss again...
Project Management Training
You know that investing in growing your knowledge, skills and experience is the single best personal objective to have, but much like me, it is sometimes difficult in our busy professional and personal lives to find the time (and money) to invest in ourselves.
Classroom training takes you away from your work and family, while books are harder to read and absorb, let alone have opportunities to apply the ideas within them.
Classroom training is always intensive and with a high learning curve - not to mention stressful as you try and cram in as much information as possible while competing for the tutors attention and time. Hungry and exhausted, you trudge back to your hotel for...homework assignments and more studying - OUCH!
If you are like me, it varies when you are in the 'best' frame of mind to absorb new information, annoyingly, these times seem to occur at inconvenient points in your regular work week. If you do take time off to attend classroom training there will inevitably be interruptions let alone calls and emails from questions and crisis back in the office! So you are distracted, with only half your mind and energy applied to the learning.
But what if you could have (on any of your devices - mobile, iPad or notebook for example), a set of structured easy to listen and absorb 'how-to' project management videos?
I have developed a wide range of project-related video training products under the Project Management Mastery brand name. In addition, I also run project management training seminars across the world, and I am a prolific writer on the many topics of project management.
The Project Management Mastery Range
I founded the prince2 masterclass product way back in 1999 to promote and provide a step-by-step high quality video approach to provide PRINCE2 Practitioner candidates with a self-study preparation for the PRINCE2 Foundation and Practitioner exams. My PRINCE2 Training System has since been granted a License by the APM Group as the official approach to prepare for their exams.
Since that time I have created many more Mastery Training Systems - all specializing in downloadable, easy, step-by-step project management online training video courses.
I spent 25 years as a senior project manager for USA multinationals, and have deep experience in project management
I believe in challenging the current way that project management training is delivered. My video training Mastery Training Systems are beautifully designed, simple to absorb in easy steps, and are downloaded direct to your computer.
No matter what industry you work in, no matter what position you hold. No matter what specialist skills you have acquired. Project Management knowledge, skills and experience will help you become better at your life's chosen profession.
Most traditional '0ff-the-job' project management training courses have been done in the classroom. Books may be used to supplement this, but it has been proven that face-to-face multimedia training works best in terms of the delegate absorption and their ability to apply it after the course.
The trouble is, that classroom training is expensive and intensive. It also has a very high learning curve. Add to this the fact that the individual delegate has to compete for tutor attention, and you can see how traditional classroom training has not always been effective.
This is where online training scores hands-down.
Creating high quality, high-definition, videos with clear and structured supporting documentation has been my objective since the year 1999. I call these Project Management Masterclasses - want To Own One?
My list of available Masterclasses covering many disciplines within project management leading to certification, grows every few months, and as I write, I am currently creating a new Agile Project Management Class.
All my classes are on the Projex Academy
I wish you Good Luck on advancing your project management career and salary!
