Fall Enrollment Is Open for Solomon Coyle Project Management Training
Solomon Coyle is accepting reservations for Project Management Training classes scheduled to begin mid-September. The program is available to dealers having a primary alignment with Allsteel, Haworth, Herman Miller, Kimball, Knoll, Steelcase or Teknion LLC. Registration can be done online at the Solomon Coyle website.
“Disruption is producing opportunity that stands to multiply as the concept of ‘workplace’ continues to change,” said David Solomon, the firm’s managing principal. “Dealers can leverage project management to capitalize on the opportunities. Our approach to PM Training develops and hones that leverage.”
Scott Jamison, the primary instructor and Solomon Coyle’s lead consultant for dealer operations, believes that we’re going to have to evolve toward a new understanding of what the “typical furniture project” requires. During the fall term, he’ll provide current context for the course material by covering many of the project management considerations now arising from workplace change.
“Whether it’s workplace strategy and design or product design or materials and finishes, we’re seeing a lot of innovation,” Scott said. “And dealers are complementing those efforts with their own innovations in terms of service types and project execution. The implications for sequencing, labor estimating, project logistics, site safety and more are significant, and it’s going to take time and thought to get it all right. Meanwhile, dealer PMs are still accountable for project efficiency, profitability and customer satisfaction. The PM job is more important than ever to dealer success.”
Solomon Coyle’s PM Training program simultaneously addresses dealer goals for margin protection, customer satisfaction and retention, and talent management. The course is delivered through 10 interactive webinars, individualized instructor attention, a wealth of field-proven work tools and supporting materials, and a final exam assessing student comprehension.
