The Project Management Institute is the largest international organization devoted to the structure, improvement and promotion of the project management discipline. The Institute’s original focus was construction management but now includes predominantly other industries. Yet certain segments of the construction management market and certain international geographical areas favor or demand use of the PMI approach.
The presentation will focus on the project controls aspects of the PMI approach and will provide two key benefits
- Understanding how the PMI approach, structure and tools can benefit the wider construction management discipline and markets.
- Learn how all practicing construction managers can begin to learn how to effectively work in geographical regions and market segments that use the PMI approach to increase their effectiveness and exploit new sales opportunities.
