In this webinar, Richard…

In this webinar, I'll go through some of tools…

February 4, 2020 @ 12:30 - 13:15 EST

The four key elements of Project Management are cost, quality, scope and time. Of all four, I most often get asked to help researchers with cost. Or more to the point budget setting and management.
