Afternoon All,

Looking for some guidance if possible,

I have recently (last week) taken on a new job as a projects team supervisor where I am supervising a few project managers and there team. All is going well but I need some guidance on where I should continue my training.
My background was originally from the shop floor and I've worked my way up. I spent two years as a enginering manager where I had to manage engineering projects including mods/new builds/designs etc but as with these things I picked things up as I went along until I was, in my own and others opinions, reasonably good at managing these projects. But now that I am managing multi discipline project managers I am unsure where to increase my knowledge. I've looked at the PRINCE2 courses but I dont know if these would be any good or if continuing my cross trianing into electrical/building services would be better or even just to do more general mangement training..?

Sorry for the ramble but any time I seek guidance from the course providers etc they, amazingly, say there course would be best. And as the previous person to hold the position has passed on I can't ask their opinion.

Any guidance from others that have done or doing this kind of work would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks you

Marty Barr
