CBES Constructive Solutions

CBES Certificates The courses designed for CBES consisted of eight half-day modules, covering such topics as Project Management & Programming, Risk Management, Contracts & Negotiations, Leadership, Procurement, Dispute Resolution and TQM.

The programme aimed to enrich the soft skills of project management for the CBES staff in order that they could engage with their clients and fully appreciate all aspects of project management and how each element impacts upon another.

Following discussions with the School we were able to develop the Certificate of Project Management course that was bespoke to the company and fully aligned with our business. A total of 62 managers have now undertaken the programme. We look forward to working closely with GCU to support the future development requirements of our employees.
