We think that your real value add for this course is in your strategy:

  • How do you go about setting your project priorities?
  • What is your approach, or thinking process?
  • What does your week look like, that you are able to juggle so many responsibilities?
  • Mentioning Lotus Notes and SharePoint is great, as they are helpful tools, but we are really looking for how you think about your projects.
