SNA Software sponsors Virtual Project Control Summit 2021
Join SNA Software LLC and Project Control Academy from 11 through 14 May in going above and beyond the commonplace in project management and controls.
The virtual Project Control Summit is the best-in-class global virtual conference in project controls that brings together more than 3,000 project professionals from around the world. Participants come from industries as diverse as construction and engineering, energy, power generation and utilities, transportation, information technology, aerospace, chemical engineering, and healthcare.
Given the diversity of industries represented, the Summit is an exciting venue which represents a unique learning and networking experience. In the three years that SNA has attended and sponsored the Summit, over three-fourths of attendees have more than 5 years experience in project management and controls.
For those wanting to enter the project management discipline, the Summit provides an opportunity to meet the thought leaders and practitioners of some of the most successful companies in the world. For those who are already well established in their domain, the Summit represents an opportunity to broader horizons, learn about other perspectives, and network with other established and respected members of the project management community.
Better yet, attendees can learn about SNA Software’s exciting new leading-edge developments deployed among its expanding forward-facing customer base in government and industry that meet the Summit’s goals of “above and beyond.” These include new and simple automated solutions in digital transformation and integration, and methods in capturing the entire project lifecycle to include program framing assumptions and goals, systems engineering, technical performance, risk and uncertainty, financial performance, as well as the more traditional schedule, earned value, and schedule risk analysis.
