An old Hindu saying teaches, “There are hundreds of paths up the mountain, all leading in the same direction, so it doesn’t matter which one you take.”
The same could be said for each us about our journey to Project Management. At the December Chapter meeting, two of our own Project Managers, Alexander Deardorff, PMP, and Julie Wyman, PMP, will share hints, tips, and lessons learned on their unique yet similar paths to Project Management.
