Project Management needs help at many firms

Sep 22, 2015

shutterstock_259338482In a recent poll of project managers and firm leaders in the A/E industry, training/mentoring was ranked as the most important thing A/E firms could do to improve project management. The poll also indicated that 65% of firms have no formal requirements to becoming a project manager. We know that many architects, engineers, planners and environmental scientists are drafted into project management roles with little to no training, so we created this seminar to fill a desperate need in the industry. This is the first PM seminar specifically tailored to new and aspiring PMs. This course has been approved for 6 CEUs/PDHs and will provide attendees with a fundamental understanding and some specific tools they can use to be more effective as project managers in an A/E/P or environmental firm. We have a number of dates for October, November & December, throughout the U.S. You can see dates and locations here: Our instructor, Howard Birnberg, offers specific examples based on real-life construction industry experience by a long-time industry consultant, trained as an architect. Birnberg is one of the foremost experts on the subject of project management and is the author of numerous project management books. He is active in a number of PM-related organizations--and has given hundreds of seminars to thousands of architects, engineers, planners and scientists over the years. We hold our seminars in nice hotels in convenient locations. Instead of being stuck in a dark basement room with bad coffee and stale donuts, we provide a comfortable light-filled environment with delicious full breakfast and lunch. I promise no attendee will be disappointed. Contact me or visit if you have any questions. Christina Zweig, Director of Research & Marketing,
