Half Day Workshop: Learn GIS Project Management, Dec 2nd
It is one thing pushing buttons to create a map, and a very different ballgame planning and managing work at the enterprise level with proficiency. It takes a very different skill set to oversee multiple projects successfully, making sure that their work is broken down while synergizing with each other to achieve optimum results in terms of the quality, time and cost of deliverables based on set goals. Typically these skills are not taught in colleges and universities, especially with respect to GIS. Few people have mastered this subject themselves and teach this exclusive material with a passion and 40 years expertise like Peter Croswell.
