CONFERENCE 802 - LES DÉFIS DE LA MODERNISATION DU MÉTRO DE MONTRÉAL

DESCRIPTION

During the initial phases of a project, a manager must take into account how different existing requirements must be integrated into said project. The Montreal Metro, with each of its stations exhibiting a rich cultural heritage (“One station, one architect”), is a perfect example of the many complex issues a project manager can be faced with.

Through tried-and-true as well as creative examples, our speaker, Mrs. Sonia Vibert, will present different intervention strategies necessary to outlining project content at the STM, thus demonstrating how a manager must sometimes think outside the box in order to ensure a project’s success.
