About the Program

Based on her over twenty years in corporate America, Joanne Aaronson, PMP captures the essential elements of her innovative and creative applications that have contributed to project success: She’s brought in every project she’s worked on!

Ever try to hold a WBS meeting and not have good attendance? Is it because it’s boring? Or a requirements session that seems dry, stale? Could it be that team members don’t want to work together? Using your creative abilities can make these sessions fun, motivate people to work together and still get the job done.  This one-hour program presents the underlying concepts, then several creative tools, techniques and a case study to illustrate just how important being creative is to project success.

Working level examples are presented to encourage project leaders to incorporate these creative techniques to get the work done with fun, flair and accomplish some team building to boot. Learn how to power up your creativity!
