Project Management applies to more than business. With some creative tailoring, the same techniques can benefit the most important set of projects of all – those in your life.

This thought-provoking session will demonstrate how to “projectize” your life and develop action plans for all your worthy goals, personal and professional. You’ll learn the key questions to ask and the strategic concepts needed to design action projects in your key life domains, including family, financial, community, hobbies, career and more.

This session features the Logical Framework Approach and principles from the presenter’s book STRATEGIC PROJECT MANAGEMENT MADE SIMPLE. You’ll leave this session with fresh insights you can immediately put to use to experience a richer and more satisfying life, as well as an opportunity to learn more.
