Project Management Training is tough and the learning curve is large. In addition to your technical expertise, you need to master the strategic thinking skills necessary to "see" beyond the technical detail to the end result of the project and the business value it will create. You need planning skills, budgeting skills and all of it must be wrapped with effective communication styles that you can adapt to a myriad of audiences; executives, team members, technical specialists, line managers and many more. The consistently effective PM makes effective assignments to team members and can motivate to high levels of performance even when they have a number of other assignments and a "real" job. If your week in math, your Project Management Training should include boning up on your math skills. You need to master the estimating process both for the overall budget and duration of a particular job as well as for scheduling individual people and their assignments for that job.
Your Project Management Training should include the following:
Contract Administration focuses on making your staff more contract savvy and the proper management of contracts.
One of the most challenging aspects of construction today is timely and proper communication. A large part of the communication takes place in the form of a RFI, COP, Sketch, Submittal, Transmittal, Drawing, COR, CCD, Letters and now E-Mail.
How your staff manages the processing, distribution and filing of these documents is critical to the project's success. Document control should be the foundation of your focus and training. Whether your a PM working for a contractor, construction management company or a sub-contractor, the paperwork and documentation must be meticulously kept up to date and followed up regularly. The jobs will flow much better and disputes will be settled quicker and in your favor.
Cost Control is the pinnacle of your project management training. The project manager's cost control efforts will help in better understanding the entire process by incorporating the principles of the previous disciplines. The jobs must make a profit and any potential cost overruns must be dealt with immediately.
