  • Architects
  • Practising building construction inspectors
  • Project engineers
5 Days
Programme Overview
This course describes tasks and issues that project managers must address at different stages of Geographical Information System (GIS) project development by striking a balance between theory and practice. Topics include strategic planning, work program development, project management techniques, budgeting, staffing, sustaining program support, and managing consultants and vendors.

At the end of the course, the participants will be able to:

  • Gain knowledge in managing a GIS Project in all its phases: User Needs Survey, Needs Assessment, Database Design, System Design, Data Conversion, Application Development, and Training.
  • Get hands-on experience in managing a GIS project
  • Acquire all skills needed to prepare a GIS project documentation such as a request for proposal, proposal, and various project deliverable documentation.
  • Better understand the issues of staffing and budgeting, teamwork, and consultant-client relationship through real-world case studies
This training course will utilize a variety of proven adult learning techniques to ensure maximum understanding, comprehension, and retention of the information presented. This includes formal lectures and interactive worked examples included in several workshops. Presented also will be several illustrative and instructive videos. The emphasis in the seminar will be on the explanation of all technical points and providing answers to problems that are encountered in everyday industrial practice related to operation and maintenance, as well as repair and alterations of industrial heating equipment.
