FOR AECOM EMPLOYEES ONLY - The Managing AECOM Projects (MAP) course is a 2-day intensive session in the fundamental elements of project management.

Course Objectives: • To improve the quality and consistency of project management in AECOM • For professional and career development • To highlight the AECOM tools and techniques to manage projects • To learn from each other’s experiences The course is also approved under AECOM’s International Association for Continuing Education and Training (IACET) Authorized Provider accreditations which permit it to be used for Professional Development Hours (PDH) and Continuing Education Units (CEU) to meet applicable continuing educational requirements.

Wrap-up Training Approach: “Tell me and I’ll forget, show me and I may remember, involve me and I’ll understand” Training involves a number of techniques: lectures, facilitated discussion and exercises. Participants typically include project management personnel with a wide range of experience. The more experienced participants typically refresh their skills and understanding. More importantly, they contribute to the learning through relating the concepts to their personal experience with AECOM projects. The training is preceded and followed by short in-class tests to document the learning that has occurred in the class and provide an indication of the competence level of the participants as they leave the class. Very important “take-aways” from the class course are: • The MAP Guidebook, a compendium of all of the elements of the course as well as appropriate supporting material • A list of “Take Home Ideas” compiled by each participant • A network of fellow Project Managers with whom they can socialize issues and ideas after the course is over.
