As businesses face increasingly complex projects and regulatory requirements, the demand for employees who have project management experience is on the rise. To give students a head start on developing these critical skills, Tucson’s Palo Verde High School recently hosted project management workshops led by CE Wilson Consulting.
Open to area high school students with a minimum 3.3 GPA, the workshops took place one day a week for three consecutive weeks and gave 15 students the opportunity to manage a project from start to finish, while developing and strengthening creativity, team building and leadership skills. The three course modules, Introduction to Project Management, Managing a Project, and Project Presentation, are designed to replicate the real-world experience of managing complex projects in a work setting.
“We received such good feedback, we hope to continue to do the workshops in Tucson and expand to Phoenix-area schools as well,” said CE Wilson Director of Operations Frederick Richardson.
