Project management skills enhancement in the Roads and Traffic Authority NSW

The project management skills enhancement programme was developed for the Roads and Traffic Authority of NSW and given to about 200 project team members throughout the State and involving about 35 projects valued between $0.5m and $150m. Its goals are: 1. To enhance skills of Roads and Traffic Authority (RTA) project managers and their teams based on up-to-date project management techniques 2. To develop a project management culture focused on RTA needs 3. To clarify the responsibility/accountability of project managers including their reporting needs 4. To apply the techniques to attendees' projects between workshop sessions 5. To develop communication skills and foster team building. Training programmes are established with a designated taskforce. Delivery is through a series of two 2-day workshops and on-the-job tutoring. At a concluding 1-day workshop, participants present their findings to senior managers after a morning critiquing session. Training workshops provide a balance between formal tuition and exercises related directly to attendees' projects. Between workshops, these exercises are developed for direct application in their day-today work with the aid of field tutoring.
