A Bridge to Enterprise Project Management, Part 1


Project Management Workshop

"Plans are only good intentions unless they
immediately degenerate into hard work."
 -- Peter Drucker

The Project Management Workshop provides a one-day overview of how project management increases productivity through better management of project scope, schedules, resources, deliverables, communications, teamwork and management without line authority.
