Whether it delivers value.

It’s great to be on time and under budget, but to achieve positive results, project managers have to embrace an all-new philosophy of what it is they do for their organizations.

The trick is to focus on value when managing a project, from its initial inception all the way through its completion.

This Webcast explores key concepts and approaches for establishing the value of a project, identifying project value drivers, developing performance metrics for tracking and reporting, organizing your team for improved accountability, and much more.

Far too many projects lose sight of their original purpose due to shifting resources, changing organizational objectives, and other unexpected developments.

Attend this Webcast to learn about a clear, immediately usable blueprint for delivering the kind of project success that truly provides value to your organization.
