Don’t miss out on the next PMI Chapter Meeting on March 16th, 2017. This is a lunch meeting. Networking starts at 11:15 AM!
Stop Playing Games! A Project Manager’s Guide to Successfully Navigating Organizational Politics
Rick identifies and discusses the day to day world of a Project Manager. PM's have the unique ability to find shortcuts or work arounds in dealing with projects, sponsors, etc… Rick, in his humorous way, will try to help PM's avoid the playing of games through his years of experience and help them with getting stronger, more process oriented, and more respect for the work they do. Rick will offer real world advice, you’ll gain proper techniques that you can immediately use to impact your projects, learn how to influence without authority, stop end rounding projects and get back to the basics that will help create a Project Manager that will do the right things the right way.
Registration closes at noon, Monday March 13th.
Remember to log on to register.
