When: June 3, 2014 6:00 PM
For our June 3rd meeting, Carl Pritchard gave a lecture on Project Management entitled Getting Your Projects Under Control Before They Control You. Every engineer, every day, faces challenges galore. Each day we forge ahead, doing what we can to get the job done. Carl Pritchard examined how you can get control of your projects before they get control of you. He examined tricks of the trade for gathering information from others and assuring that your “little” projects don't explode into something big.
