Webinar No: B02-212W
PDH Credit: 2
Presenter: Richard Grimes
Time: From 12:00 PM to 2:00 PM ET
This live webinar presentation provides immediately useful tips and insight to help a seasoned engineering or project leader adapt to the new requirements and expectations of the more business-focused role of strategic planning.
Maintaining a seat at the Big Table requires mastery of a new skill set that was not taught in engineering school. This is not about economics and finances but the survival skills you’ll need to thrive in this political atmosphere near the top.
You will understand the elements of positional and personal power, building essential alliances, learning to assess your new executive peers, develop strategies of influence and how to wield them effectively, be able to develop long term essential vendor relationships, and learn fundamentals of successful negotiating.
This 2 PDH online interactive presentation is intended primarily for engineers or project managers newly assigned to more business-centric roles focusing on the future of the business and building strategic relationships with key vendors and clients and less on the day-to-day technical engineering or PM issues.
This continuing education interactive presentation is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:
- Identify what a Strategic Planner does and why it’s a critical position in a growing business
- Identify key new skills essential for success in this new position
- Understand the phenomenon of personal power within the organization and how to develop it
- Identify the strategies of influence required for success in this position
- Learning to consider vendor relations from a new and broader perspective
- Fundamentals of negotiating more successfully
