The DPM Experts Solutions Bar

Sometimes the best solutions are a combination of multiple perspectives. In that spirit, we put together a panel of our DPM Experts to give their unique take on a series of project management challenges that you put in front of us.

The format is what we’re referring to as a “DPM Expert Solutions Bar”. We start with some rapid-fire solutions to common PM challenges, and then we get into discussing specific challenges from the audience.

Did watching this inspire a challenge that you want us to cover? Post it here in the “What is your biggest challenge these days” thread in the DPM Forum!
