    PRESENTATION: Influential Leadership in Project and Program Management

    Leading and managing multiple large scale projects with several inputs and variables at one location can be daunting in the best of times. Imagine leading and managing projects at close to 100 locations with even more inputs, variables, and people. Three large scale corporate projects;  an ERP conversion, a Warehouse Management System implementation, and ongoing Warehouse Real Estate Optimization, can combine into confusion and strife if the right goals, priorities, and communication is not agreed upon and followed. Leading these different project teams at a program level relies on influence, prioritization, planning, communication, and a lot of great people.
