She has developed project management programs for her clients around the world. She developed project management for training companies, webinar providers, and conferences. She works with organizations to improve strategic leadership and planning, employee engagement, and customer delight.

Today, much work in organizations is organized as a project although it may not be called a project. Often, through years of downsizing, people with in-depth special knowledge in critical areas are no longer available. The work still needs to be performed when needed, so someone is assigned. Thinking about these special, periodic assignments as projects and applying the approaches of project management helps the person in charge systematically organize work, people, and stakeholders to get the job done successfully. Anyone can use the basic tools of project management to make their work more efficient and effective.
Project management is the art and science of getting results by following a roadmap laid down to turn customers desires or organizational goals and needs into concrete products and services by following established procedures in a defined sequence. The Project Management Institute brought active practitioners together to produce the Project Management Body of Knowledge, PMBOK, which is used around the world on all sorts of projects of varying sizes, with or without software support tools. Acquire the basic tools and approaches of PMBOK to turn special assignments into projects, which you can manage successfully to get the required results.

- Define the “business problem”

- Apply lessons learned to the next project
