Systems Engineering and Technical Management
The delivery of projects to meet stakeholder needs within time and cost constraints is becoming increasingly difficult as the complexity, technical difficulty and stakeholder variation increases. Good system engineering management is the key to unpicking and managing the issues that engineering leaders face in these situations. This course covers the technical, leadership and behavioural tools and approaches that engineering managers need to be effective.
Where will this course be held?
Our courses are typically held at our dedicated Learning Centre in Crawley, West Sussex, near to London Gatwick Airport however we will also be holding the course at venues in London, Manchester and Bristol. When you book this course, please specify your preferred location on the booking form in the special instructions box.
Who should attend this course?
This course is for system engineers and anyone involved in technical management including IVVQ test and acceptance managers. It also provides a good grounding for other key members of engineering project teams such as project or programme managers or specialty engineers who wish to understand the issues around managing engineering projects.
