At Konektid, we believe that achieving positive impact is not just limited to project management teams, but that all support divisions like finance, HR, and contracts, play essential roles in delivering impact. That is why we will be doing a series of events on 2019 exploring how these divisions can help better deliver positive impact on projects. Our first event in this series will focus on how finance teams can help deliver project impact. You can register for this free event below:
