If you work in a multi-project environment as a product developer, engineer, or R&D expert, then the notion of multi-teaming is probably familiar. Most likely, you have key people assigned to multiple projects at the same time. Planning and managing these resources efficiently is almost impossible. Key resources themselves are challenged with fragmented work, time pressure, lack of focus, ambiguity, a constantly changing environment and, above all, dissatisfied project managers.

In this webinar, Jan Willem will show you how resources should be managed in order to make multi-project environments successful.
