The Art of Project Management: Wait, What's my Job? (Course 1)

Wait, What’s My Job? kicks off a 4-part Project Management Series tailored to reflect the deep interdisciplinary collaboration that distinguishes design and construction practice in our region.

The kick-off course is all about getting to know one another, defining the role of a project manager, establishing shared meaning on terms, and defining that the ‘secret sauce’ of great project management is (spoiler alert!) not the newest project management tools (but we’ll touch on those briefly). Rather, it’s the “soft” skills and techniques you use every day that matter most.  Hear from your peers and interdisciplinary panelists about what it means to be a collaborative project manager.

Intended Audience

The series has been designed sequentially for cohort-based learning for architects, engineers and contractors at every table. Registrants should consider participating in all four classes (March-June) for optimal benefit. Visit this page to learn more about the full series and registration costs.

A LA CARTE REGISTRATION: A few a la carte registration spots are now available for each individual course. Firms may not purchase a series registration with the intent to send a different individual to each session. Please register each individual for their respective course. Please direct any registration inquiries to Zoe Guckenheimer.
