Project Management: The Basics

This presentation will serve as an introduction to Project Management for those who have recently attained their PMP or are currently seeking it. It is my hope that by the end of the night, everyone will have a better understanding of how to actually implement and execute some of the processes and concepts covered in the PMBOK. There will be time at the end of the presentation for questions and I encourage the group to have a real discussion as the sharing of ideas is one of the best ways to improve your project management skills.
