Super Foremen Workshop

The next Foremen Workshop will be held May 5 & 6, 2023 at Viega’s Training Facility in Broomfield, Colorado.

The project foreman needs to be much more than just a talented journeyman who knows how to “go fast.” The foreman is the first line of management in the company, and must become the quarterback by learning more than just the technical trade skills required to install the work.

Like a quarterback, he must have a carefully crafted and practiced game plan (or else it’s sandlot football), he must be able to execute the plan, he must be able to adjust the plan when teammates stumble or show less talent, he must provide accurate feedback to the coaches on the bench, and he must AT

ALL TIMES keep his eyes on the goal of winning the game.
That’s what this two-day program is about…Winning the Construction Project Game!

Kirk Alter, Professor Emeritus at Purdue University, is the lead instructor for the Super Foremen Workshop.

In short, a great class. For new and upcoming foremen, it gives guidelines for expectations and the structure to achieve them. For older foremen who have been in the game, gives you great info to improve everything you are doing.” — Foreman Workshop Attendee
