Project management CoP


Engineers work with, in and on projects. The project management of these sometimes very complex projects is of great importance, as the project team is responsible to its client for the deadlines, costs (effort) and results. Together with the external suppliers and service providers, this results in a complex structure.
In our workshops, we learn by sharing experiences. The group meets with interested parties at least once a year, usually at the beginning of the year, and deals with a main topic.
