How do we manage projects and customer relationships effectively? How do we understand the full scope of a customer “project”? How do we assemble the necessary resources to effectively manage a customer relationship and attendant projects? To whom do we delegate specific responsibilities, and when? These are among several questions we discuss and about which we learn as we strive to effectively manage projects and the customers whose project we are managing.
Would you like to get more (or all!) of the projects you manage in on time and on a budget? Are you concerned about people in your project teams not having enough knowledge on how to effectively manage a project? What about yourself? Would you like some help to more effectively manage your projects? Would you like to more effectively manage others’ expectations? If you answered "yes" to any of these questions, you should join us.
