    Best Practices & Tools for Improving Project Success: Introducing the web based Solutions Tool Kit from Productive Enterprises

    • What best practices, processes and tools provide the most high leverage help?

    This presentation will show how the Solutions Tool Kit from Productive Enterprises meets the challenges of providing highly convenient, affordable, scalable support for product development and project management professionals and groups.



    A Better Way to Capture High-Content Meetings and Support Follow-Up

    • As much as 40% of a professional’s time is spent in meetings:
    • How effectively are details from those meetings retained and applied to follow-on activities?
    • How do you inform team members who are not available for a meeting?
    • What are your communication options beyond email when teleconferencing is not feasible?
    • How do you take comprehensive notes and participate at the same time?
    • How often are important details lost that could have helped nail customer requirements, provide technical support, or write well-targeted proposals?

    In this presentation, Quindi will discuss an innovative new way to extract more value out of the time spent in meetings without adding to the burden of follow-up.
