Description

The engineering and consulting business today is more challenging than it’s ever been. The business today requires new thinking about markets, marketing and sales, geographic footprint, staff retention, training and operational efficiency. One thing that hasn’t changed is the need for effective project management! Projects are what we “do” in this industry. It’s how we serve our clients. It’s how we make our money. You absolutely, positively can NOT run a successful engineering and consulting business without effective project management. Consequently, new and emerging project managers must understand the basics of project management and how it affects their clients, their firm and their future.

 

This one-day, inter-active, project management workshop focuses on teaching the essential skills that emerging project managers need to have to be successful in the engineering and consulting business today:

  • Awareness - what every PM needs to know about the business
  • Winning - the PM’s role in winning the work
  • Planning - the “10 essentials” of a solid project management plan
  • Controlling - delivering the plan and staying on track
  • Closing - lessons learned and continuous improvement

 

These five learning modules cover 27 specific topics that ALL project managers need to be familiar with. The scope of each topic presentation includes basic subject information and provides usable tools (templates, spreadsheets, checklists, and references) that project managers can begin to use immediately.

 

The workshop includes a bound notebook containing all of the presentation material, Continental Breakfast and Lunch.
