PSMJ's Project Delivery Excellence For Public Agencies focuses on simple project management approaches that achieve better results than traditional, less-effective, more time-consuming methods. This program will provide you with the tools to more efficiently manage multiple projects while controlling the schedule and budget and the changes that inevitably happen. Our project management protocols focus exclusively on the public works environment and issues that specifically hit the public sector on a daily basis.


Public Works Project Managers need the skills and the know-how to select the best consultants, negotiate scope, schedule and budget, and deal with elected officials and the public in a very direct manner. During this information-packed two-day workshop, you'll learn:
  • The best ways to manage quality and risks
  • How to effectively manage change
  • Getting your projects closed out and accepted
  • What it means to be a project manager/leader
  • What’s really important to know about project planning
  • How to manage design firms and construction contractors
  • The best way to “control” schedule and budget


Everyone from experienced Public Works Project Managers to newly-minted ones get value out of this Bootcamp. Attendees include individuals interested in improving their project management skills as well as teams of Project Managers sent by A/E/C public works firms seeking an competitive edge in project management.
