Project and Process Management

ByJerry Wellman

Successful projects and stable processes are essential elements of overall organizational success. Leaders must ensure that their organizations select worthy projects, provide resources to enable those projects to succeed and monitor the performance of those projects. They must also ensure that their organizations understand their processes, maintain process stability and continually improve process performance.
