Project management isn’t just for construction engineers and military logistics experts anymore.

This workshop is not intended to take participants from a supervisory or administrative position to that of a project manager. However, these three days will familiarize participants with the most common terms and the most current thinking about projects.

• What is meant by a project.
• What steps must be taken to complete projects on time and on budget.
• How to sell ideas and make presentations.
