Strategic Management and rapidly changing business requirements


With examples from Gorilla glass and other new business opportunities, Shashi will discuss the project needs that new business development will require from program managers: changing objectives, customers under tight timelines, internal customers and stakeholders, and incomplete information for decision making.

Attendees will receive 1 PDU in Strategic and Business Management
