To provide engineers and non-technical people with relevant, practical information, news, and tools to help them manage their projects efficiently and effectively. To help develop their project knowledge base with a basic understanding of the main facets of project engineering in North America.

Who is this site for?

It is for anyone involved in managing projects and wants to have better control of those projects (anyone who wants to be the master of their own destiny), those experienced at project management or just starting out in project engineering. Industry or consulting. Technical or nontechnical.

Are you an engineer or technician who has no special training, yet is given the task of overseeing a project. Nowhere to go for good practical project advice and help that you now need? No Coach? No Mentor? Then you have found the right place.
