“Think differently and succeed!”

From a team of multi-disciplinary trainers!

To manage construction today we are encouraged to “think differently”.  The foundation for success is to understand the parties’ commitments, expectations, responsibilities, “whys” and risks/rewards in all the stages/components of a project.

When you “KNOW” your job, you can “DO” your job!  Be the Project Owner, Consultant, Contractor or Expert Advisor who is known for “doing the JOB well!”

Project Delivery Methods – “Know Your Responsibilities!”

Proposal Pursuit – “Strategies for Success!”

Managing Construction Series Background:

For the first time, we are bringing virtual instructor-led expertise to your office through the synergy of multi-disciplinary trainers’ decades of knowledge that has only been delivered at conferences.  And it gets better!  In the past, conference presentations have been focused on a one-way exchange of know-how from the speakers to you.  These workshops move beyond that one-way exchange to allow you to apply what you have learned.

A team of multi-disciplinary experts will provide you with exceptional feedback, great insight and actionable strategies.  We look forward to sharing this expertise with you.

By sharing decades of expertise from the training team, these workshops will help you to understand the roles, responsibilities and expectations of the CCDC contract clauses that are our commitments to each other.  This understanding will empower you to manage and mitigate risk to ensure your project is successful.
