Project Management Essentials – Design

The faster things change, the more important learning new strategies becomes. Some aspects of design for construction are changing faster than ever before. Project Management Essentials provides architects, engineers and other built environment design professionals with the practical tools needed to achieve successful outcomes in all aspects of project management.

We constantly update and improve our programs. This year, we’ve added new sections on WFH/WFA – Working from Home / Working from Anywhere, and expanded coverage of essential negotiation skills. We’ve learned from surveying our participants that Scope Creep is THE No. 1 problem, with 75% of participants identifying it as a level 4/5 or 5/5 project management issue. We’ve developed a program guaranteed to tackle and minimise that problem.

With information doubling every two years, design professionals struggle to stay current with the techniques they need to remain relevant.

PSMJ Resources facilitates learning experiences for design professionals worldwide, in highly interactive workshop settings. Participants contribute their own experience, learn from the experience of others, and together gain a deeper understanding with PSMJ guidance.

We have 40 years of teaching and working with thousands of design professionals, from hundreds of practices. We’ve provided structured learning for Australian and New Zealand architects, engineers and other design professionals for over twenty years. With a global team of 80 professionals who have successfully run their own design and construction businesses, PSMJ passes on this invaluable experience to industry professionals of all levels.

The Project Management Essentials Program delivered by PSMJ offers 14 Formal CPD points for design professionals.

What Participants Have Said

Very knowledgeable relating to past experiences and giving tips and ideas to improve my own skills.

Grant Parker, Structural Engineer, Kehoe Myers, Brisbane, QLD

Bill Parker is an excellent and encouraging tutor, with an obvious wealth of knowledge and experience, coupled with fantastic communication skills.

Brendan Le Poidevin, Town Planner, Fyfe, Adelaide, SA

Fantastic course. Charles is very knowledgeable and very engaging - highly recommended.

Julien Van Den Berg, Practice Manager, Allen Jack+Cottier, Sydney NSW

Excellent course; providing great examples, knowledge and resources for future use.

Jonathan Whittlesea, Project Leader, ACOR Consultants, Sydney, NSW

The course was very insightful. It broke down important aspects throughout project lifecycles, which you normally don't get the chance to sit back and think about.

Sam Dalgleish, Civil Engineer, Peak Urban, Brisbane, QLD

Best I've attended, so far (and I've been to many!). Lots of helpful material and stories to learn from and improve oneself.

May Abihay, Civil Engineer, KCB Australia Pty Ltd, Brisbane, QLD

Charles’ knowledge and experience enables him to provide exceptional advice and insight.

Steve Mahoney, Project Architect, Roxby Architects, Perth, WA

I found the course helpful as it identified PM skills not addressed at work.

Rob Keaveney, Geotechnical Engineer, Douglas Partners, Sydney, NSW

Very well presented with reliable material. The interactive and breakout team exercises were great in applying the lessons.

Mark Kennedy, SBA Architects, Sydney, NSW

Bill did a great job at managing the conversation and was appreciative of everyone's input and perspective. It was an incredibly beneficial couple of days!

Brett Diprose, Associate Principal, Warren & Mahoney, Melbourne, VIC
