Project Management program director, Tom Browdy, recently presented to the St. Louis chapter of  American Society for Quality (ASQ). His discussion focused on the behavior of expert project managers and how often they are unaware of the skills and talents that make them experts in their field.

Three critical behaviors were revealed as a result of analyzing 14 interviews of expert project managers.

Exciting Changes to TLC Programming Coming in 2017

We are pleased to announce that we are making some changes to our programming at the Technology & Leadership Center at Washington University.  As part of our effort to develop and deliver outstanding education, training, and professional development, we’re aligning TLC’s training and certificate offerings with those of our graduate degree programs.  In an effort to better align the non-degree certificates with our masters programs, we are transitioning to a model that helps our students meet their performance goals more quickly.  The changes allow students to earn micro-credentials, giving them mastery of a skill-set that incorporates concepts taught by our WashU faculty, within one year.
