We discuss problem identification, problem solving, user motivation, senior management support, budgeting, training program justification, objection handling and more. As the class progresses, you complete a self-evaluation to help you prioritize your management action items and quantify the savings you can generate via better management practices. This class is product agnostic, so don't worry about what discipline you support as a CAD manager.
