Project Management

Formally managed projects drive significant benefits to the bottom line and increase the odds of meeting goals for schedule, budget, and specifications. By carefully defining deliverables, allocating budgets, controlling scope creep, documenting the plans, and formalizing communications, projects are much more likely to succeed.

Basic Project Management can be applied to hardware and software implementations, new products, facility expansions, new business processes and more. TDO’s workshop on Basic Project Management will fully prepare your leaders and team members to effectively manage projects with the framework, tools, templates, and techniques for success.
