Frontline PM & Jobsite Management

Online Training to Improve Your Project Management Team

Project Management

More than 55% of systems integration projects fail (late or over budget) because of bad estimates and poor project management and execution.

At completion, on a typical installation project, the variance between project bid margin and actual margin is around 10%. This negative project slip is due to bad estimates and poor project management. Just a $1,000 loss (cost slip) on one project will force you to do $59,000 for free to make up that lost revenue.

The only way to sell profitable jobs (good estimates), manage them efficiently, and install them right the first time is by improving the performance and professional growth of your frontline team.

Your sales executives, project managers, and installers – the people who generate the revenue and profits – need performance-based training to improve the entire project process. Just a 10% improvement on project delivery could increase profits by one or two percentage points, which could increase company NPV (net present value) by up to 25%.

Get your frontline teams the education, support, and training they need. NSCA is pairing up with Nadim Sawaya of Enterprise Performance Consulting to bring customized training sessions via distance learning. We’ll help your team get the education they need in a convenient online program– without travel expenses!

“First off, I wanted to thank you for your project management training course! It was very concise and informative, and I felt it captured many of the nuances and processes to be a good project manager in an easy-to-follow format. I had been looking for a while to find a good program that was tailored to the low-voltage electrical/construction industry, and I’m glad I found this. I will be recommending this course to my upper management for all three of our branches here in Southern California, and I am also looking forward to putting some of our field supervisors through the jobsite management training.”

Jobsite Management Training On-Line Course

The installation phase of a typical project presents the highest risk for Systems Integrators. With smaller margins, field work is even more critical for profitable projects. Most integrators lose more than 10% margin points at the project completion due to labor cost overrun and/or missed change orders.

This course is designed to help Lead Installers and Field Managers to effectively manage the installation phase of projects, avoid scope creep and capture every opportunity for Change Orders.

This course also offers a foundation to prepare individuals for a career in project management.
