This one-day training course covers the critical focus areas every AEC Industry project manager should be familiar with and is presented in lecture, tutorial, and case study workshop sessions. Attendees will leave armed with a comprehensive understanding of the characteristics, skills, and techniques successful project managers must have to flourish in their role.

Many architects, engineers, planners, and environmental consultants receive little or no training in project management and are expected to produce exceptional designs that are on-time, under budget, and error-free. Add in the desire to maintain stellar client relationships, and many Project Managers feel unequipped to produce desired results. Zweig Group’s Excellence in Project Management Training program is a solution to this common problem.

We start with the role of the project manager and why you have to “want” to be a project manager in order to have success. Communication is the next area we focus on with an emphasis on how project managers can improve their ability to communicate with external clients and stakeholders and internal team members. We look at the challenges of scope, schedule, and budget, and how small tweaks in your project management process can improve the outcome in these three areas. We also dive into decision making, financial facts, and figures, marketing and business development, how to deal with a crisis, and specific case studies. After this training, attendees will be well equipped to tackle most any project management issue.
