About the Event

THE FOLLOWING EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED Sometimes the most difficult part of a project is figuring out where to start. Who should I engage? What deliverables should I develop? How should I invest my time? Ideally, there is clear direction about how to progress from the beginning. More frequently, there are many ambiguities and conflicting direction. How you start out on a project can lay the groundwork for success… or take you down the path to failure. During this luncheon discussion, Scott will share some thoughts, suggestions, and real-life experiences about how best to start when you are trying to bring order to chaos.
