Project Management for Engineers

One-Day Workshop

“Gary has a way of organizing and presenting complex ideas that is easy to understand and inspirational. During this workshop, he distills the concepts down to a practical core of ideas and recommendations that can be readily applied.”
– Charlie Hyman, Manager, Sure Power Industries


The Project Management for Engineers workshop teaches the fundamentals of project management that are relevant to the needs of most technical project leaders. A key objective of the workshop is to provide an approach to technical project planning that enables project teams to put together realistic, comprehensive plans quickly.

Traditional, iterative, and hybrid project lifecycle models are introduced, with exercises that show how to plan projects for successful outcomes using best-practices that will fit within most existing product development processes. A Technical Project Plan Template is provided, which is useful for companies that don’t use a template; and for those that do use a template it can be used to enhance your technical project plans.

The case studies and examples in the Project Management for Engineers workshop are drawn from a broad range of product development team environments at small, medium, and large companies serving many industries. You will also benefit from the workshop leader’s direct experience contributing to successful engineering projects for over 25 years.
