Falk's Eight Rules to Project Management Success


We only have 60 minutes. How much can we learn in that amount of time? How about over 40 years of business experience boiled down to 8 rules to make your life immensely easier. Whether you are a full time project manager or someone just starting your career, this presentation will give you a unique perspective on how to do your job more effectively. Bruce's humorous and somewhat irreverent look at how to manage your projects will ring true with common sense and reality. Come join us on May 26th. Walk away with information you will remember and use at home that night, at work the next day or right away with the person you have a Zoom call with when we finish.
