Morley Selver

Morley Selver is 'The Project Doctor'. Drawing on his over 35 years of industrial project management experience, he provides training, books, articles, information, and project management services. He has worked in industry, with and for consultants, and had his own consulting business. His industrial experience includes operations and maintenance, research and development, project management of small to medium size plant projects, construction management of large industrial projects, mechanical installation of heavy industrial equipment, commissioning and startup of industrial plants, and plant management.

He has been a project manager on projects in operating pulp and paper mills, oil refineries, terminals, on North Slope oil projects, board plants, and the recycling industry in various locations across Canada and the USA. His experience in industry indicated there was a need for basic project management training in the management of complex industrial projects. This was not well represented in the project management training arena and is what led him to write the published book “Plant Project Engineering Guidebook” plus several e-books available on his website. From this book he developed the workshop “Fundamentals of Project Management”, “Capital Project Cost Control”, and “Certificate in EPC Project Management”. The EPC Project Management workshop is accredited by the Project Management Association of Canada. He is a Professional Engineer (Canada), a Certified Senior Project Manager with IPMA (IPMA Cert B), the Director of Certification for the Project Management Association of Canada, and one of their “First Assessors”.
