Speaker: Vish Nath
Topic: Transformation from Project Manager to Project Leader

speaker nath vish

Project managers have one mantra - “On Time, On Scope, and On Budget”.

They are well organized, good at communication and have a horizontal view of the organization and various departments.

After understanding all this, why then are project managers often overlooked for senior management roles?

What skills should project managers develop to move to the next level?

In his storytelling way, Vish Nath will explain the skills needed to transform from project manager to project leader.

The 2018 Vijey Kumar Scholarship recipients will also be announced during the Flagship Meeting.
