Successful projects result from good time and cost control and effective motivated teams. Both are achieved by using this interactive approach to planning and managing your projects. In this workshop, you will get hands-on experience using this team process that can be immediately applied to your projects.

This process has been successfully used on hundreds of projects of all types, including expansions to the Vancouver Domestic Airport, upgrades to four key BC Airport Terminals, development of Blackcomb Ski Resort and the first phase of Whistler Village, redevelopment of Mont Tremblant Ski Resort (Quebec), Expo 86 Pre-Planning, several BC Courthouses and Correctional Facilities, Westwood Plateau, Coquitlam Centre, initial Burrard Inlet Fast Ferry Terminals, creation of the Town of Tumbler Ridge, preliminary plans for Translink Expansions, planning of Edmonton Walter C McKenzie Hospital, redevelopment of 5 major Alberta Hospitals, new displays in the Royal BC Museum, process improvement for high tech projects, and many others.

Similar workshops have been provided to over 20,000 participants in Canada, United States, England, Australia, India, and Korea.

The workshop is intended for managers, supervisors, specialists, and staff who are involved in, or expect to be involved in, projects of any size or type, either as a leader or as a team member. The concepts presented apply to projects of all sizes and types, from physical construction to softer projects such as changing the work-process in a department.
