Coffee Talk

Dave Prior

Before we leave the office for the weekend, we stop for a quick coffee talk with our project management colleagues to chat about their best practices. Well, not literally, but that's how we designed our interview series "5 questions about project management". To be fast, intense and refreshing like a good cup of coffee.

Dave Prior is the former Chair of PMI’s IT & Telecom SIG and served on the steering committee for PMI’s Agile Community of Practice.
