Contractors Guide for Success – Project Management Class Syllabus

Both versions of this class cover the same information, onsite, or webinar. Classes are basic by design; many different software programs are available to assist you in managing your projects. Most of them are outstanding however, no project management software is used in our class; we utilize Microsoft Word and Excel files. We stress the need understand the importance of knowing how to complete these tasks manually. This information will complement most project management software – we will strive to make it better because your understanding will be better – attending this class may clarify what to look for in software. In this class, we stress the importance of being proactive, rather than reactive in our business. A small amount of planning will eliminate an amazing amount of headache in reactive time.

The differences between the classes are the on–site classes will be completed at various locations around the country in two, two hour on site classes. The webinar version is completed in six, hour and a half webinars, one class per week, at your computer in one on one instruction between you and the instructor.

The text that is included will be referenced while in class but will not be read or even have all sections completely reviewed. The text has a dual purpose; it prepares our student for our time in class, and is a reference guide for our students when their class is complete.

We cover a vast amount of material; No homework will be assigned as each student will see different opportunities to increase profit, reduce stress, and retain as much profit as possible. To get all that can be achieved from this class, you may ask as many generic, non-job specific questions as you want. Students are able to extent these questions via e-mail/RFI are for up to a month after the class is completed.

At JDE & Associates, our goal is to help contractors succeed!

Interested, but not sure, if one of our classes is right for you or your firm? We offer one free one hour webinar per contractor to show what we have to offer, more importantly how we teach. This is not your normal sales call; this hour will be spent helping you with areas that are an issue for you and your firm. We sell classes, everyone knows, so instead of your typical sales presentation this time will be spent dealing with your issues or concerns. This offer is a one-time offer per contractor. Use our Contact Us Page – just to the left or on the top of this web page, tell us what those concerns are, give us a few days and times when you can spare an hour. We will send you a confirmation on which day and time we can complete your webinar.
