What I Learned About Project Management from Driving an Old Sports Car! 
Wednesday, November 20th,
5:30 - 8:00 PM
Project management focuses almost exclusively on tracking schedule, to the dangerous exclusion of metrics that are almost always the cause of project failure. 

A project is analogous to an automotive engine, more so than is apparent. Learn on how lessons learned driving a classic sports car can teach us much about effective project management.
