TURN YOUR PROJECT MANAGERS INTO WORLD-CLASS PROJECT LEADERS
About the Program
The basic techniques for managing projects — scheduling, budgeting and cost tracking — are well-known and available from many sources. But to join the ranks of “World-Class,” your project staff must learn to think and act like business owners with their own money and success at stake.
FMI’s Project Manager Academy is built around four core themes:
- Profitable customer relationship development
- Powerful, integrated project teams
- Financial control of projects
- Planning of projects for profits and customer satisfaction
Throughout the Project Manager Academy experience, project managers and staff examine themselves, their organizations and their processes, learning how to transform themselves from talented builders into true project leaders.
Who Should Attend?
Anyone interested in developing exceptional project delivery capabilities:
- Project managers
- Project engineers / assistant project managers
- Project executives
- Superintendents, assistant superintendents, field engineers
- Vice presidents of operations / chief operations officers
Companies often find great benefit in having several team members experience Project Manager Academy at the same time, because it can help build common knowledge and accountability amongst colleagues and enables graduates to get better traction in applying industry best practices in their organization.
Project Manager Academy is four days of intense, no-nonsense, total immersion into the business of construction that will fast-forward all attendees’ career trajectories and contributions to their organizations. FMI’s results-oriented approach transforms project managers into world-class project leaders, equipped with the business acumen, communication and leadership skills to own the outcomes of their projects. Throughout the program, project managers engage with their peers across the industry and across the country, opening their eyes to new methodologies and best practices.
Attendees leave the academy with an engrained mindset of a construction business owner – intimately aware of the financial and relationship risk at stake on every job and their responsibility to lead projects to successful outcomes for their organizations and their clients.
