Among the attendees were Rune Hunstad, a Senior Technical Manager Projects at National Oilwell Varco. He says he signed up for the course to be better equipped to act as project manager.
“I learned a lot about how project roles are distributed regarding the systematics and how projects are set up. The course leader did a very good job, and the group also engaged in interesting discussions,” says Hunstad.
Lars Hem, Senior Manager Components Procurement at HMH, says: “At HMH, we are often engaged in projects. My motivation for attending this course is to gain insight into the role of a project manager. During the first two days I learned more about how to build a project organization, and how to manage it. I found that very useful.”
The course targets project managers with experience, who lack some of the formal competence and who want more basic theory to become a good and professional project manager. The instructor is Kristian Spilhaug, a Consulting Manager and Lead Instructor at Sopra Steria.
The first part of the course took place at Thon Hotel Arendal in early February. The second and last part of the course takes place in Kristiansand on 8-9 March.
