This popular program, facilitated by PSMJ President Frank Stasiowski, provides attendees with the understanding they need to confidently move from high-level project management into firm leadership roles.

Bridges Interface Management
Bridges Interface Management

Bridges Interface Management (Bridges) is a new PSMJ program that identifies and fixes the “weak links” in overall project delivery: specifically planning, managing and verifying the flow of mission-critical communication at project interface points.

Assertive Design Practice (ADP)

ADP is a new, advanced level design consultant program in development, that will equip participants with the knowledge and skills to take a more decisive and controlling role in overall project delivery. Participants will learn negotiation skills in a workshop setting.

Content in more than one program is not duplicated. For example, content in PM Essentials: Design is developed for design professionals; whereas related content in the Bridges program is for a whole-team perspective: Clients, consultants & contractors together.

You care about your clients

PSMJ’s goal is to better enable you to provide your clients with what they need and want – effectively and efficiently.

Effectively, because that’s what creates repeat clients. Efficiently, because they must deliver that level of service competitively and still make a reasonable profit to survive.

PSMJ’s Professional Development Program facilitates Learning. Learning is different from Training. It’s focused on knowledge absorbed rather than knowledge transmitted. This difference is important.

All programs are offered as a strategy for Continuing Professional Development with content targeted to meet Professional Associations’ CPD educational development requirements. PM Essentials is approved by the Australian Institute of Architects for 14 formal CPD points.

What Participants Have Said

Did this course meet my expectations? YES – in particular because I have done other PM courses. This fits the needs of Architects, Engineers. They should not do any other form of training (i.e. with someone else).

Phil Margot, Business Unit Leader, Rudds Consulting Engineers, Sydney

Hugely informative, relevant and practical guidance based upon solid evidence-based examples. The material and its application provide me with a robust set of tools to meet the challenges of the profession.

Peter Smith, Senior Associate, Suters Architects, East Melbourne, VIC.

I found the course informative and instructive, especially with some new concepts to improve my ability to manage projects, in particular earned value analysis.

Ray Kamil, Senior Engineer, Irwinconsult, Melbourne, VIC

Charles has an incredible wealth of real world personal knowledge and experience. The “before and after” test is an excellent reinforcement tool.

Wonderful, practical & real world relevance. Not a course selling a prescriptive model, but a new way of using the information we have.
