PM in the AM Breakfast (Airport) - 180606

"Project Team Members: Assets or A**es? Successfully Managing Your Human Resources to Move Your Project Forward!"
Presented by Sheree Knowles, Founder and Chief HR Officer

Join us for breakfast at the Georgia International Convention Center for a great start to the day!  You will enjoy networking with peers, a hearty breakfast, and an engaging presentation.


Along with monitoring the “triple constraints” of time, cost, and quality, you must successfully manage the people on your project team. Identifying the right talent for your team is just the first step. You’ll also need to keep them engaged and committed to completing their deliverables. It is especially challenging when they don’t report directly to you. In this workshop, you’ll learn techniques that you can utilize to successfully manage the people on your project team and ensure that your project is completed on time and on budget!
