The ability to manage projects for commercial success is a key attribute of all successful engineers. Aimed primarily at young consultants, junior project managers, and graduates pursuing professional qualification with institutions such as the ICE and IStructE, the course will examine what project management is and why it is needed, before introducing delegates to the importance of understanding project financing, contract requirements, and commercial risk. Thereafter the course will be taught by following a mock project from Client inception and definition of the brief, through the estimation and bid process, to project set-up and delivery. Each stage will be covered using mini-lectures to convey core material before delegates apply that learning through practical exercises. The course will conclude with a look at change control, and the importance of post-project reviews and the sharing of lessons learned.
The course is next running in Chesterfield on 11 May at a cost of just £220 plus VAT.
