Delivering work on-time and on-budget can be a real challenge. Efforts to ensure timely delivery is often impacted by inadequate information and often leads to missed deadlines and frustration.

Drafting a personal roadmap for getting more accomplished with and through people
Specific activities you may choose to complete during this session include:
Articulating the purpose, staff, and products needed to successfully complete a project
