Each event brings together experts to share best practices, topical scenarios and personal experiences. Training All of ASMI’s publicly offered courses can be adapted for your offi ce, department or company. In-house training provides a customized, cost-effective vehicle for educating your staff with a hands-on forum facilitating both team building and project planning. Our in-house training programs are focused on performance measurement, strategic communications, process improvement, strategic planning and change management.
