Review the Full Program Agenda

Operations managers in a consulting engineering business have their work cut out for them – they have to do it all! Beyond the technical work, they’re tasked with many different responsibilities, including:

  • Winning new work
  • Turning a profit
  • Keeping the cash flow moving
  • Developing and communicating with staff
  • Managing risk

And that’s just the start. At every step, your firm depends on a manager with solid operations knowledge and management expertise.

Essential Training: Fundamentals of Effective A/E Operations Management is a two-day, information-packed training program that covers the essentials of successful operations management.

Whether your current operations people need to strengthen their effectiveness at juggling a plateful of responsibilities, you’re a marketing leader looking for fresh insights to remain competitive, or an up-and-coming manager seeking to improve your current business skills, this course is for you!

In just two days, attendees will be ready to:

  • Recognize and mitigate risk in practical terms
  • Understand financial reporting and metrics, including items such as the relationship between profit and cash flow, and the levers for improvement in each
  • Increase sales through smart analysis and sharp focus/energy
  • Prepare and implement a profit improvement plan
