Project Management Beyond the Military

The WMPMI has always honored and heard from veterans during the month of November. Again, this year is no exception.

Our lunch speaker will draw upon his experiences in the military, what he's learned from the book, The Marine Corps Way: Using Maneuver Warfare to Lead a Winning Organization, and  his transition to project management and civilian life. As an empathetic leader, he always remind himself that, "I am not in-charge, I am responsible for those in my charge!"
