Here’s an outline of how the program works. While we have several coaches and trainers involved in the program, our lead instructor Ann Tomalavage, P.E. PMP, LEED AP has not only helped thousands of engineers through her work as sole provider of in-person project management foundations training for the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) nationwide but has been an effective project manager herself, so she knows what it takes…
For Individual Participants:
- Once registered, enrollees receive a welcome message that will provide a schedule of the skill building sessions (with PDHs) or a date of when the schedule will be provided.
- On the day the session starts, there will be an orientation call that reviews the session schedule, the coaches, and the technical tools of the program (i.e. webinar system, Teachable, etc).
- Following the orientation, enrollees are given access to Teachable where they can access the workshop.
- Over the five weeks, students are given 5 live one-hour skill building sessions on the following topics: project scoping, scheduling, creating a project plan, cost estimating, and delivering effective project meetings. With each session they receive assignments to help them practice the strategies and build the skills discussed.
- They’ll spend the remaining two and half weeks completing the assignments and creating a plan for implementing these new habits long-term.
- Enrollees may attend a group coaching call (schedule TBA).
- Upon completion of their assignments, each enrollee will receive a certificate of completion, which can be sent directly to their supervisor if desired. This is recommended to provide maximum accountability. Should they require PDH credits, they will have to complete the session evaluations for all skill-building sessions as required by the PDH provider.
Are you ready to move from a high-potential engineer to a powerful project manager?
For Project Teams (Teams must be enrolled by a firm):
- Using the strategies from these sessions and the collaboration tools, they begin to brainstorm and craft solutions to their challenges.
- During the fourth and fifth weeks, the teams build their presentations and have access to our coaches through the forum and through one group coaching call.
- Upon completion of the five weeks, the teams present their solutions to our coaches, forcing all the enrollees to present. Our coaches provide feedback, guidance, and recommendations for improving the presentations/solutions.
- The enrollees then use the feedback to improve their solutions and then present the solutions to their companies. The companies may or may not utilize the actual solution, but either way their professionals have now developed the confidence and skills they need to grow into successful engineering managers.
