Chris Vandersluis

In this presentation we are going to show you Project Management magic. Not a sleight of hand, not a trick.  We’re going to show you how to create something out of nothing.  In this case: Time.  Finding resource capacity sounds simple, just add staff but in reality it’s not simple at all.  Even when you can add staff, on-boarding, training, getting people up to speed all takes time and for most organizations hiring more resources is simply not possible right now.  But what if you could find all kinds of capacity with many of your own already-hired, already-trained, already-knowledgeable staff? 
You can.We’ll go through some actual examples of our clients who have been able to find time in places project managers don’t normally look and instantly increase their resource capacity but 10%, 16% even 50%.We don’t want to waste your time so this session will go quickly.  Find out how to create time and increase resource capacity in only 20 minutes!
