Projects are the lifeblood of growth and development. Projects are how we build and maintain physical and virtual infrastructure; projects are how we bring products that save and improve our lives to market; and projects are increasingly how we execute new strategies. It's therefore vital that we figure out how to execute projects faster and more efficiently.
Sanjeev will draw upon the 400+ multi-project implementations done by Realization Technologies, as well as more than 50+ infrastructure projects managed by the Realization team around the world, to show you how to execute projects 20% to 50% faster and increase project completion rates by 10% to 30%.
This 3-part masterclass is about hardcore planning and scheduling, not about soft skills or the gobbledygook of thinking processes.
Sanjeev Gupta is CEO of Realization Technologies. Realization's customers have achieved more than $6B in bottom line benefits using the knowledge he will share in this Masterclass.
