by George Freeman, PMP
August 08, 2019 | 60:05 | Views: 5,813 | PDUs: 1.00 | Rating: 4.47 / 5

Project HEADWAY: Breaking Out Of The Lessons Learned Trap

PREMIUM presentation
by Mark Mullaly, Ph.D., PMP

We all know we are supposed to do a “lessons learned” exercise as part of our projects. Some of us even take the time to go through the motions.
