Webinar: Implementing Planned Percent Complete in Your Organization or Project Team – May 24, 2016 2-3 pm EST

Posted April 15th, 2016

A team from the Linbeck Group will cover the implementation of PPC’s or Planned Percent Complete and how they can help your organization increase success in completing commitments (either within your organization or on a project team). PPC’s can be used to track and measure handoffs between predecessor and successor relationships and can be applied to ANY task that has a deliverable. This webinar will also discuss how PPC’s can help you to identify trends in commitment failures and how you can overcome them more efficiently to help mitigate variation.
