Getting the Results You Want - It's All In Your Head! with Jessica Tidwell
Chapionship Traditions - Project Resource Management, with Liz Price
Registration Opens 9/1. Late pricing starts 9/21.
Managing projects can be brutal. Your project may start off within scope, budget, and timeline, but pretty soon things take a nasty turn and you are left stressed, discouraged, and ineffective. Projects can take a toll on you mentally, physically, and emotionally. The good news is that there are skills that will help you keep your project on track, refocus your project when you get into trouble, and build the relationships you need to get your project across the finish line.
This presentation goes beyond the tools and processes of the PMBOK and focuses on helping you perfect the skills you need to help you, your team, and your project be successful: organization, thoughts, body language, and vision. To get the results you want, you need to start inside your head!
