This course is specially designed for those who develop energy efficiency and DSM programs. The focus is providing you with the practical skills and tools to manage programs effectively from start to finish – including research, planning, design, launch, marketing, evaluation and reporting. Learning is hands-on, supplemented by lots of handouts and featuring interactive group activities designed to put into practice the thought processes required to perform the job. Modules will be presented by various instructors who are experts in the respective areas of DSM programs.


“Knowledge is power. When you understand the process, you can choose what you want to do, delegate what you don’t like to do, push it to others…or outsource it! More importantly, you can talk like a boss. I say it again, knowledge is power.” – anonymous Utility Program Manager

Oh, all right, we admit it, we made that quote up to get your attention. No one we know talks like that. However, we’re pretty sure that many of you will secretly agree with some part of it i.e. that bit about talking with more confidence when you have knowledge backing you up.

This is one goal of AESP’s "utility-only" DSM Program Manager Workshop. The other goal is equipping you with all the necessary tools to successfully manage a DSM program, or your portion of it. This very thorough 1.5 day Program Manager Workshop will teach you everything you need to know in order to research, plan, design, launch, market, evaluate and report on a DSM program. It’s a start-to-finish, A-to-Z, soup to nuts on program management.  

Whether your goal is to talk like a boss, be the boss, or simply master your job, “the journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.” (Lao Tzu actually said that) so register today for AESP’s DSM Program Manager Workshop.  (We said that.)
