Business & Management workshops
An old saying about project work among experienced project managers is “the first 90% of a project is the easiest, the second 90% is the hardest”. Getting organized and managing your time are skills that may benefit anyone at work or at home. These skills are normally acquired as we find out what does and does not work at the expense of numerous challenges or failures. Learn time tested approaches to prioritizing your work and managing your time, free up more time in your day and accomplish more...doing it on your time.
