Topic: Relationship Management for Project Managers
Project Managers manage projects similar to Movie Directors in managing films. Indicated by their
use of scopes/plots, human resources/characters, materials/props, and of course budgets are all
managed for successful outcomes. But most critical to the art of achieving memorable productions
for both skillsets is Managing Relationships.
