Project Manager Academy is four days of tough, no-nonsense, total immersion into the business of construction that will fast-forward all attendees’ knowledge, decision-making skills and leadership abilities so they leave the academy thinking and acting like construction entrepreneurs for every project. The greatest distinction between project managers and entrepreneurs is how much personal stake the individual has in a project’s success. While both are self-directed to coordinate talents and resources in order to provide profitable customer service, entrepreneurs consider a project success, a personal success and a project failure, a personal failure. In short, entrepreneurs have a compelling sense of ownership in their work. Attitude of personal ownership toward a project sets a higher standard for performance.
