Touchstone Projects | Project Management Services  
Life is a Project

• Have you been asked at short notice to get a project up and running and don't know where to start?
• Do you need a concise foundation to manage a project successfully without delving into the more time consuming and complex issues of Project Management?
• Do you have a goal to achieve and want to ensure you attain it?

If you answered 'yes' to any one of them, then this 2 day workshop is designed for you! Touchstone's workshop will equip people from any discipline (Financial, Administrative, Marketing, Technical) - in fact anyone who wants to be successful in reaching meaningful goals.

We have found during our years of managing projects, that an inordinate amount of time is used trying to educate people involved in a project team as to how a project is developed and executed and why certain requirements are necessary.
This highly interactive workshop is primarily targeted at those individuals
who need a concise course in the fundamentals of Project Management to enable
them to be functional after 2 days.

Touchstone subscribes to this simple definition:
"To bring order to potential chaos"

We are good at doing this, and invite you to attend the next workshop, or make use of our Consulting and Contracting Services.
