Topic: 
The Indispensable PM

Managing projects effectively has become essential in every organization large or small. The uncertainties of the world business economy, rapidly changing technology, and the intensifying focus on sustainability has driven many organizations to develop specific methods for managing projects and to seek highly qualified people to manage those projects. Today’s project managers must adapt to change, lead diverse teams, act as ambassadors for their organizations and deal with a multitude of challenging project stakeholders. This presentation addresses the importance of the professional project manager and the need for the project manager to continually enhance existing skills, adapt to a changing environment, and become a “go to” person in the organization. Emphasis is placed on understanding the needs of the organization, clearly and visibly creating value and managing personal brand.
