This three-day course introduces the Smart Grid Maturity Model (SGMM) Navigation process to those interested in becoming an SEI-Certified SGMM Navigator. The SGMM Navigation process provides utilities with essential planning support and positions the Navigator to initiate new engagements and gain follow-on work with utility customers.
The course is composed of lectures, case study, and exercises, with many opportunities for discussion and Q&A. To prepare for the SGMM workshop experience, you will explore the SGMM's 175 aspects of smart grid implementation. Developed by utilities for utilities, the SGMM is a comprehensive analysis and planning tool.
Your participation in class activities and an exam will determine your successful completion of the course.

This allows the students to role-play the facilitation skills required and gain the detailed understanding of the model needed to lead a Navigation.
