ND Focus – Elia’s focus on Project Management / 7-8 December 2017



Our agenda for Prague is designed to create the maximum impact on your skills, approach and mindset over two days.

On Day One you’ll hear expert presentations on essential project management topics and on Day Two you’ll consolidate these new perspectives into new ways of working to take back to the office.

For the second edition, we will dive deeply into three key topics to enable stellar project management within your company:
