Project Management Fundamentals for Construction Financial Professionals


The success of a construction project results from the contributions and strength of the entire team -- including the financial manager. It requires open communication, understanding and collaboration. Managing, tracking and forecasting the financial results on a construction project require understanding each phase of the project.

This new two-part program teaches construction financial professionals the language of construction project management, how the information available relates to each phase of the project, and provides an expert’s insight on what can go wrong. This course will take you on a journey through a sample job and map it through every project phase including making adjustments and alignment of financials/data, and how to best collaborate with the project manager to deliver the most profitable results.

Learning Objectives
After completing this course you will be able to:

  • Understand the structure and activities required for successful project management.
  • Gain an overview of the project management steps and the importance of collaboration with the other construction project stakeholders.
  • Identify potential project risks at all stages of the process.

  • Implement lessons learned, and incorporate proven principles and best practices for successful project management.


Who should take this course?
Financial managers and other professionals who work with construction projects and/or interface with project managers, operations, risk/insurance, and legal departments. It is also ideal for those individuals who may have managed financials for non-construction related industries and may also include surety, banking and insurance professionals.
