You’ve read a job posting for a new start-up company and it sounds interesting, but there is just one little big thing…you don’t know anything about that industry! Should you keep looking or should you take a leap and use your PM skills do something new? Learn how to use your Strategic and Business Management, Leadership, and Technical Project Management talents in an area where you have no experience to successfully advance your career and support an effort to propel a company forward. We will discuss the creation of Your Pharmacy Advocate, LLC and its model and the development of the PM role for the business. Attendees will be able to take practical insights learned during this session and apply them to current or new PM opportunities.
