Topic: Project Management – It’s as easy as pie (pizza)
When something is simple or easy to accomplish we often say it’s a piece of cake or it’s as easy as pie. With Project Management we’ve seemingly gone in the opposite direction. We unnecessarily complicate project delivery. We can all learn a lesson or two from the experience of making a pizza. In this session PMO Joe will compare and contrast delivering a project with making a pizza to help us all learn how to simplify and successfully deliver projects, with pepperoni or not!
