At last: Interface Engineering and Management Training for the World


We are delighted to announce the addition of two days total duration of Interface Engineering and Management training to our portfolio of training courses in support of project and engineering excellence. The training will be delivered over 2 days, 4 half-days and 14 1-hour modules. And even better news is that the training will be delivered by Mr. Paul Davies, already well known for his many accomplishments in engineering and management, some of which are described below.

Paul held senior positions with Network Rail and Thales UK. Paul has been a Visiting Professor at Loughborough University and a Visiting Fellow at Bristol University, and also a member of the conseil d’administration of the prestigious Institut Supérieur de l’Aeronautiqe et de l’Espace in Toulouse. He has acted as industrial supervisor for a number of PhD, Engineering Doctorate and Masters students at five universities in the United Kingdom.

He is a Past President of the INCOSE UK Chapter, in which role he founded its sponsoring Advisory Board and compiled its first entry into the INCOSE Chapters Awards, immediately winning a Gold Circle Award at the first attempt, and subsequently the President’s Award for Outstanding Chapter. At international level, he has undertaken leadership roles on the Requirements Working Group and the SE Management Technical Committee, and as Outreach Director. He also acted as Master of Ceremonies at three INCOSE International Symposia. Paul’s efforts for INCOSE were recognised by his being given the Founders’ Award in 2015.

Paul has conducted training courses and workshops in requirements, interface management, verification and validation, systems engineering management, competency assessment, and SE return on investment, with very positive feedback. He has been in constant demand for the presentation of courses and tutorials at many INCOSE events, both in the UK and internationally, winning several Best Paper and Presentation Awards. He has presented and coached in French and Spanish as well as English.

With such a good alignment of aims, SE outlook, and commitment to excellence, Paul was delighted to join the Project Performance International/Certification Training International team in July 2017, as a Principal Consultant and Presenter.

The first public delivery by Paul of PPI’s new Interface Engineering and Management course will be over November 2-5, 2020, delivered as four half-day modules. Delivery timing matches European afternoons, which makes for practical participation of engineers and managers from San Francisco in the USA to Ankara in Turkey, and everywhere between.
