March 2018 Dinner Meeting


Wednesday, March 21, 2018

Joint PMI / NYS Forum Meeting


Project Management-What Leadership Needs from You!

CCRS Category: Leadership

Presenter: Margaret Becker, Deputy Comptroller, Contracts and Expenditures



So you have the training and the tools necessary to be an effective Project Manager.  But do you have the understanding required to satisfy your leader’s goals and objectives?  Are you aligned with their vision? Do you have the ability to effectively communicate the progress of your project?

How do you manage expectations, and what happens when the project is misaligned with your benefactor’s expectations? The audience will walk away with insight from a leader's perspective to help you be successful in your projects.
