Join us for a discussion on who is a project manager and what knowledge and skills a project manager must, should have, and would be nice to have. For example, are these universal or domain specific, where to get, how to document, how to enhance? Guest speaker Matthew Weaver will facilitate an interactive discussion on this often challenging topic.
