Practical Project Management that Works: Real World Best Practices of a Great International Initiative
Programs and projects -- whether large or small, complex or simple, multi-country or single city -- can be highly successful by performing practical project management. This webinar goes beyond theory and shows you real world examples of best practices in action. The examples come from an international program conducted by the world's largest bottler of non-alcoholic beverages as it converted from local currencies to the euro. Every customer, supplier, and an employee was impacted, as well as anything containing a monetary value, from systems and spreadsheets to paper forms and vending machines. This program, internally called the Euro Initiative, affected the company’s operations in multiple countries and spawned over 200 sub-projects. The Euro Initiative achieved success by following project management best practices in a practical and intelligent manner. A top-level sales director stated it was the best project with which he had ever been associated. This webinar will present slides from the actual project and highlight key learnings that Project Managers may apply to their own projects. It may have been 22 years ago, but we should still follow these best practices today.
