Today’s program will explore the differences between management and leadership and how they affect project success. We’ll discuss the importance of each – and how both contribute to a solid project control. We will also explore the Kano Model concerning product development and customer satisfaction and how adopting its philosophy may assist with introducing a new program control system within your organization.
