It’s one thing to be a project manager. It’s another entirely to deploy it in true life and death situations. PMI Global’s 2019 “Best of the Best” in project management, Carl Pritchard, shares his experience in deploying project management best practices in wrestling with Stage Four liver and lung cancer…and keeping it at bay. He examines the basic life lessons where project management has saved him from bad treatments and difficult medical professionals. In this discussion with Bill Dannenmaier, Carl shares how the urgency of a terminal diagnosis brings amazing focus to what’s important in our project (and life) environments. And he explores where project management should take us as we plot out the next year, five years, and lifetime in our professional worlds.

Benefits of attending this webinar include:

•            Learn the Value of Lessons Learned, and constant recapture.

•            To never shy away from, but to reaffirm your project objective as needed.

•           Trust your professional instincts, but know where they are supposed to take you, and know when to not simply trust the process.
