    Leadership as the next Project Management Frontier

    How do you build an effective project manager?  What are the building blocks and how do they stack up?

    Much of historical engineering Project Management training and development has leaned heavily on best practices gleaned from manufacturing, information technology, and related fields; however, the modern engineering Project Manager faces a unique set of challenges that differ markedly from other industries.

    True project management superpower lies in your ability to apply leadership competencies to the project environment. Done well, leadership approaches maximize the value of the project, both for your clients and form your firm. But how can you do this?

    This session will examine the four core competencies of successful engineering project managers and will lay out a science-based framework for optimizing your project management approach. In addition to the science of project management, this session will provide practical approaches to solving common project challenges and attendees will leave armed with a fresh outlook on what it means to be a successful engineering project manager.
