  • Fed up with scope creep ruining your delivery schedules?
  • Exasperated when your development team’s software turns to “shelfware” by your users?

(Video) The Project Management Change Agent:

How to Lead Your PM Revolution

Is your organization ready for a project management (PM) revolution? 

More specifically:

  • Are your projects always running late, over budget, and plagued by “do overs?”
  • Do people hate working on your project teams and try to avoid being assigned to projects?
  • Are you continually reworking and reworking deliverables because you just can’t seem to get it right in the first place?

And if it is time for a PM revolution, then where should you begin?

This video is for everyone who wants to be the change agent who brings about a PM revolution in their organization. Whether you are a middle manager, HR professional, supervisor, or simply a task specialist who wants to conduct some “below the radar” guerrilla PM warfare, you can benefit from this video & the accompanying 25-page PDF (click here to download the PDF).  (Scroll down below the video image to see a complete outline of the topics covered.)
