Intro to Real-World Project Management

In the real-world, basically EVERYTHING is a project.  Our Founder Alan Levy spent 15 years of his career running all manner of projects, so he wanted to introduce everybody to these critical concepts himself.  For those more experienced, Alan shares the actual experiences from his portfolio of projects in the Pharmaceutical industry.  For those less experienced, Alan makes all of this understandable and relatable by showing how even projects around the house follow and benefit from the basic project management principles.
