And in particular, he explores the strategies that really do make a difference in building effective team performance.

While we can’t manage expectations, however, we can certainly help them along. That is a challenge that project managers face, and it’s one we need to understand and consciously address.

If you’ve every struggled with the idea of shaping, influencing or guiding stakeholder expectations, this is a webinar you won’t want to miss.
