About the Program

This program is aimed at improving the PM professional’s ability to truly make a difference in his/her organization. The material will educate and enable the attendee to master the use of critical PM tools in order to capitalize on their ability to generate project truth while empowering themselves to make extreme “value add” contributions to the decision making cycle.

When understood and applied in a consistent manner, the tools and techniques covered will allow the user to separate from the PM professional pack by providing timely information that will enable decision makers to be aware and consider all possible alternatives—before making critical project decisions.

Join Lee R. Lambert, a PM thought leader, for a refreshing and entertaining examination of the potential of PM.

Lee R. Lambert, PMP
