How to sell a project: the ins and outs of this misunderstood tool. The project manager is led increasingly to develop business plans. A true entrepreneur task, this step is hinged to sell the project to its partners, to ensure its funding and in alignment with the stakeholders. In the world of project management, this component is often overlooked. The business case is a very powerful tool when it is well developed. During the conference, we will look at what are the characteristics of a winning business case, to allow you to promote your projects both inside your organizations and in your personal projects. We take the opportunity to see a real case applied to the economic development of the Lachine borough of the city of Montreal.
