Connecting the dots for better decisions

When organisations are seeking the best path to success, navigating complexity in their internal management and operations and external supply chain and markets can’t be avoided. In this article, I discuss the steps needed to stand up a project management framework that drives value and success

In this volatile economic environment, as a working parent, I feel extremely lucky to still have a job, yet like other parents, we are struggling to home-school, work from home and maintain our family ethos.
