Feature Article:
Taking Advantage of the Economic Recovery With Project Management

There’s been nothing pretty about the economic recession. The business landscape has changed, established companies have disappeared, and industries everywhere have been operating in safety mode, trying to avoid risks that would leave them vulnerable. Once known as retail giants, Blockbuster and Borders proved that you have to constantly innovate and at the forefront of market trends to survive. But it hasn’t been all negative. With the clearing of slow, cluttered or inefficient businesses, the recession has created opportunity for other businesses to flourish. For companies that made it through and are navigating the current landscape, playing it safe is no way to succeed but neither is moving forward recklessly. A key factor that will make a difference is the intelligent execution of projects. By acting on projects that are the most profitable, and proceeding with very slim margins of error, businesses can maximize the value of their activities and make sure they operate profitably for years to come.
