Project Controls University - in an International Arena

by Des Pellicena

Key words


This paper discusses the issues surrounding International project work for cost engineers, planners and estimators. The prime focus is a solution that has been developed by a specific company to train its staff. The author has over the past year visited four countries and trained over 250 people via this programme, and shares the development process, plus some of the lessons learned that have been discovered along the way. He hopes that you will find the paper of use should you be venturing down this training avenue in your own environment.
