Shirley was critical to the success experienced by the functional team. Her experience and skills in PM helped the team to get and stay on track. She helped us with problem solving, defining our requirements and development of test cases. Because of her system background, she knew exactly what had to be accomplished and the order/timeframe that it should be accomplished in. -System Deployment Project Leader


Shirley's system experience helped the team understand issues outside most of our expertise.... Her planning skills help us develop a timetable for implementation and project plan.

Striking Statistic


In less than 2 years, after 2006 deployment, Cisco held more than 100,000 Tele-presence meetings which provided an estimated $90 million cost avoidance savings by decreasing employee travel and delivered productivity improvements worth more than $40 million. – CISCO 2008 IT Study


Timely Tip


Some time ago, I did a popular post evaluating free on-line meeting planning and tracking tools. Earlier this year, I did posts regarding virtual team-building books on virtual teams.  Since the virtual meeting topic still appears to be very much something people want to know about, I decided to do another post related to the topic.


This time my post is just a few links to help readers get tips on how to effectively hold virtual meetings, whether they are teleconference, videoconference or on-line web conferences.
