Better Project Management
Posted: June 2, 2011
A two-day workshop June 23 and 24 will help you or your employees improve their project management skills. Available at the Puget Sound Industrial Excellence Center in Georgetown, the workshop received rave reviews from past participants.
“I really think the class was a watershed moment for our organization and for me as the CEO,” said Jon Deex, CEO for North Star Ice Equipment in South Park.
Participants are interviewed prior to the class so content can be tailored to their specific needs. The class is based on case-studies using actual experiences of industrial firms.
The instructor is Cass Tang, president of Synergy Corps. The fee is $749. Members of the Manufacturing Industrial Council of Seattle receive a discount to $599. The discount rate is also available if a company enrolls more than one student.
The two day sessions are both scheduled to run from 8:30 am to 3:30 p.m. See the course flyer .
