The Art of Managing Projects
A workshop with just enough depth to ensure successful outcomes for typical support projects.
The Art of Managing Projects workshop is designed for support team members who lead projects such as new product releases, customer implementations, or support process rollouts. Participants should bring a project they have been asked to lead. During the two days of the workshop, we will create a complete project plan and mock-manage the project to completion.
