Why should you employ Project Management?

“Give me chastity and continence Lord, but not yet!” So said St. Augustine of Hippo way back in the fourth century, but many small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) voice similar reservations today when asked about project management. They can see how larger organizations benefit from it but, for outfits at their stage of growth they are thinking we are not ready for that yet. Here in Velopi, we disagree and argue that sound project management principles will provide not only benefits but a strategic advantage to organizations of all sizes in the marketplace.

Session Overview

In this one-hour, lunch and learn session, Velopi’s founder, Seamus Collins, will answer the following questions:

• Why employ project management tools and techniques in your enterprise?

• What benefits should you expect to see from the application of project management?

• How do you start the process?

• Has anyone been down this path before?

For whom is this course suitable?

This session will be of interest to anyone who is working in project teams, or who is tasked with bringing projects to successful conclusions. If you feel things could be better organized then this might be the step your firm needs to take.
