  • Business Challenge

    Siemens’ field engineers must be able to assemble a project team, establish technical objectives, plan projects, manage changes to the scope and stay on schedule, within budget, with a high degree of consistency and quality. Newer engineers need the hard skills or competencies critical to project management, while experienced engineers need strong people skills to be better able to respond to tough interpersonal issues.

  • AMA Solution.

    Following an in-depth discussion between AMA and Michael Sivick, Manager of Training and Development for Siemens, AMA’s basic project management course was customized, with significant changes made to the curriculum, adding two days to the program. The partnership approach extended into implementation as well. In the deployment of the revised and expanded course, AMA focused on leadership and people skills as well as project management skills.

  • Results.

    Less experienced engineers were able to take on positions of authority a lot quicker than they had in the past, and more experienced engineers demonstrated increased effectiveness in project management, including communications and interpersonal skills. Recently, Siemens updated the course content, making it an integral part of its new global [email protected] initiative and an internal requirement for Project Management (PM) certification within Siemens.
