What is the FMI Project Manager Academy?
The FMI Project Manager Academy (PMA) is where talented builders become
construction entrepreneurs. PMA is a tightly structured, four-day program in
which project-delivery professionals examine themselves, their organizations and
their processes in comparison with best-of-class performance through a variety
of hands-on experiences.
This high-level, immersion experience is built around four core themes, each
an essential building block in mastering the business of construction:
- Developing business and maintaining customer relationships
- Building and managing powerful, integrated teams
- Understanding and mastering financial control
- Project planning to achieve profits and customer satisfaction
Insight and true understanding of these themes are developed over the
four-day program through intense, experience-based exercises, coaching from
design and construction industry experts, and interactive guest lectures from
highly successful contractors. Working in small teams under the guidance of a
personal coach, each participant scales a steep learning curve and internalizes
the lessons-learned in follow-up sessions and group discussions.
Participants will make use of various indoor and outdoor facilities to work
through the learning exercises that build new understanding and insight and are
provided with all equipment and resources needed for these exercises.
Personal Performance Enhancement
Woven throughout this high-learning-curve experience is an extremely
personalized feedback process, in which each participant's strengths,
weaknesses, behavioral preferences and communication styles are analyzed,
discussed and interpreted. Each attendee will develop a personal action plan for
capitalizing on their assets and compensating for the areas in which they are
Feedback begins weeks before attendees arrive with an in-depth 360º survey
and a 250-question Human Patterns diagnostic. It continues throughout the
program in both one-on-one sessions with a personal coach and in the small-group
setting of the team.
The goal of this program is fundamental behavioral change. Attendees will
evolve from seeing themselves as mere employees and "witnesses" to project
outcomes, to virtual owners with a personal stake in project and corporate
success and the tools to make it happen.
Who should attend?
Anyone within the design and construction industry who is interested in
developing a "world-class" project delivery capability. Attendees include
professionals from construction contractors, subcontractors, architects and
engineers, which include project executives, project managers, project
engineers, superintendents, vice presidents and estimators.
