Workshops are live classroom classes focused on bettering your knowledge on project management and leadership fundamentals. Rather than multi-day marathons, LSM has found that attendees like short, focused tutorials that are highly interactive and fun. LSM workshops range from half-day to full-day with the intent that you'll return to work armed with a handful of impactful tips and techniques you can immediately put to use on your projects.

 

These are fee-based but very reasonably priced (not to mention that you can earn PDUs, too)!
