While our Project Management Accelerator – PM Skills Course is a new course, launching in March 2020, the praise below is from individuals and companies who participated in our Engineering Management Accelerator – People Skills Course which utilizes the same delivery process and course structure including the assignments and team challenge. This will give you an idea of the experience that our clients gain from EMI training.
“The Engineering Management Accelerator program was a great way to train a group of managers, from different disciplines and office locations, without incurring travel costs. They learned how to collaborate and solve business problems by utilizing technology, which can be a huge benefit in a multi-locational company. Our managers enjoyed the project challenge part of the training because “it was a real life issue that we had to solve” and will take the skills they developed in the workshops and “apply them to their everyday interactions.”
– Jessica Viscuso, Director of Learning & Development at Pennoni
"Taking part in EMA was a very valuable experience to me. Initially I was skeptical about signing up for the program because of my busy schedule, but I’m glad I did! Finding a coach with a similar background, who has an understanding of where we (engineers) come from and has knowledge about the industry made the experience truly unique. EMA is well designed to initiate and accelerate management techniques such as team building, decision making, communication and networking skills. We may possess the technical knowledge to grow, but Anthony’s program and tips helps develop the much needed soft skills to become better engineering managers and leaders."
