Many government infrastructure projects are delayed due to lack of planning, budget overruns and procurement inefficiencies, thus compromising progress and quality of service. The Marcos administration has ordered the fast tracking of its implementation.

This training program is aimed at achieving this purpose by equipping participants with the best practices necessary to address above challenges and achieve success in every project implementation.

We will thoroughly discuss the critical process of project implementation including planning, packaging, clustering/ declustering, conduct of EPA (estimated project amount), cost estimation and actual execution.

Take your project implementation skills to the next level. Enroll and learn the secrets of the seasoned practitioner on this topic.
