Five Tech Megatrends that are Changing the Game ... | Project Management | Scoop.it
In 10 years, over 40 percent of the Fortune 500 will no longer be around. By 2020, more than three fourths of the S&P 500 will be organizations that we have not heard of yet. Predictions like these are common these days. What if they turn out to be correct?

Strategy Execution | Totally Optimized Projects

Strategy Execution | Totally Optimized Projects | Project Management | Scoop.it

Claude Emond's curator insight, February 26, 2014 9:10 PM

From the introduction to this graphic novel: «You have projects. You have deadlines. You have teams. But you also have to manage those "turn-on-a-dime" moments that are an inevitable part of the process. In our new graphic novel, "Snowed Under," you'll follow a PMI-ACP® who uses agile approaches to be the calm during the storm». A nice way to do a survey on Agile use and on your intention to get certified PMI-ACP.  FUN, FUN, FUN ! :)
