Topic: How to Build Your Own Project Management Methodology.
Have you tried an off-the-shelf project management methodology with little success? Do you know you could be managing your projects better if you had a project management methodology that actually works for you? Are you stumped about how to start the process of building your own tailored project management methodology? This practical interactive session will introduce you to the basics of building your own methodology including processes, tools, techniques and templates. If you already have a working tailored methodology you will be encouraged to contribute and share ideas with everyone else.
