In guiding a project, particularly one in the building and construction industry, team effectiveness is critical to the successful delivery of the project. In reality, many people talk about team effectiveness in construction, but very few are really good at understanding and implementing team effectiveness.
Whilst Team Effectiveness is not a new concept for training design, Exner Education can draw on their 25 years of experience in the construction industry and have tailored this course to address many of the challenges (call them risks) facing Construction Projects and their Project Managers today.
Please note that this course is priced in US dollars.
