Are you managing Projects as well as you could be?
What is a project?
The detailed arrangement of a series of activities required to transform a series of target objectives into working reality.
With the objective of completing the task:

- Do the people leading the project have the necessary vision?
- Are the people involved competent to take on the project?
- Is there a culture of project management within the organisation?
- Is there a W.I.F.M. factor? (What’s in it for me!) to motivate the interested parties?
