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!”

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.  Three trainers (Project Owner, Consultant and Contractor) will share their perspectives and expertise. And it gets better! In past, conference presentations have been focused on a one-way exchange of know-how from the speakers to you. These workshops allow you to apply what you have learned and provides the opportunity for participants to ask questions and tap into the extensive real-life experience and expertise of the diversity of our accomplished trainers.

Courses are available to be taken individually, but if taken in the order below knowledge will be built on from previous sessions.
