Field Service Manager


The Field Service Manager program is dynamic and interactive, with students frequently working in small groups, presenting findings and working on the course case study. The program is four and a half days of course content and university-level instruction and learning that is focused on managing a field service operation.

Field service managers must be able to manage in an environment of highly skilled, technical people. The manager must be able to lead, coach and facilitate the activities of these people towards accomplishing the field services mission and have excellent insight into the demands of customers, subordinates and the service business.

Homework is assigned for most evenings of the course. Please plan for study time outside of class.

    Brilliant class but very hard! Some parts were more difficult to relate to my own business as we are a much smaller organisation, however it has given a great insight if I choose to move companies in the future. Thanks Steve

  4. Tommy Alatalo says:

    Very pleased with the course and the week. One thing I missed is a schedule every day. Just to print out how long/short time to the next break/lunch.

  5. Fredric Holmstrom says:

    Kind of down at the bottom of day 2 (I think we all agreed). The class members were nice and I think that you empowered us. Taking steps outside the comfort zone.Thanks! 🙂

  6. Matt Wrench says:

    This is now the second SGSA course I have attended, and every aspect of the course was superb. The material is relevant, thought provoking and challenging and I’ve learned a great deal about management best practice and how to improve my own management style as a result. Steve is a fantastic presenter who makes the content interesting and has a wealth of knowledge and experience that is evident in the presentation style. I would highly recommend anyone at any level of service delivery attends an SGSA course. Thankyou Steve and Michelle!
