PMIGLC Breakfast Series Debuts!

Note: due to the generous sponsorship for this event by Barton Malow & Walbridge, PMIGLC is able to make this a no-cost event.

This year PMIGLC Corporate Outreach focused on Greater Detroit Area’s Construction Companies.  Dr. Hani Emari, PMP is the Director of Corporate Outreach for PMIGLC.  He has reached out to many of his colleagues and counterparts to advocate the use of PMI Philosophy and PMBOK framework to enhance their Project Management efforts.  The feedback so far is positive on how PMIGLC membership and association helps our businesses.  The PMI Outreach team members have shared their experience and knowledge with Corporate Executives.   The outcome of the discussions is to continue building a significant, Construction Community at PMIGLC and to host Panel Discussion and Construction Executive Round Table (CERT) events to discuss major challenges faced by the industry and to share Lessons Learned in a collaborative and friendly environment.      

Topic: “Quality Management for Business Success by a PMP”

It is no surprise to any corporate executive, that excellence in quality retains customers and brings new ones.  However, Quality Management in Construction is far more important than just business profitability.  For sustainable business success and growth, continuous improvement through a Total Quality Management approach is the key to manage scope, risks, safety, productivity, efficiency, and elimination of rework.    

In this panel discussion Dr. Emari will present his recent experience as Project Quality Manager in L.S. Brinker for two of DTE Energy’s projects, managed in association with Barton Malow.  He will demonstrate the Quality Management System (developed by benchmarking from DTE AWP, US Army Corps of Engineering CQM, and the PMI Construction Practice Guide)x. 

The panelists from Wayne State’s Construction Management Program, DTE Energy, Walbridge, Barton Malow, and SME will critique the system and offer their lessons learned and suggestions for improvement.  The outcome of the meeting will be published as PMIGLC Construction Quality Management - Lessons Learned and will be made available for all members to use.
