Managers take action in every step of the management process. Witnesses do the bare minimum without any sense of innovation or creativity. If you want to be an effective manager, you should eliminate the term “status-quo” from your vocabulary. This seminar will equip Project Managers with the foundation of management expertise they need to efficiently direct the entire project life cycle, from Job Start-Up to Job Close-Out. The program is designed to uncover real “productivity potential” by teaching process improvement along with management and leadership techniques. Norb will instruct participants how to stop getting by and start getting results.
