No project is successful without a plan. Putting a plan together will certainly ensure that deliverables are defined and tasks are completed. However as a project progresses and project team members come and go, keeping the project team on task and then closing the project is really the difficulty part, not to mention getting the customer to sign-off on the final deliverables. This webinar is meant for those who have seen project target dates slip because final details are delayed.

This webinar is designed for those who want to explore interpersonal skills to help them work more effectively with others.
