The Driving Ultimate Project Performance or DUPP Methodology is a proven, four-step project performance enhancement methodology. We have presented the methodology’s concepts to PMI Chapters in the U.S. and have received great reviews.

Unlike other project management tools, DUPP improves project performance by focusing on the Project’s most important asset…the Project Manager.

The DUPP Methodology was developed specifically to systematically help Project Managers assess their current project leadership strengths and weaknesses and identify any gaps that may exist. In most cases, such gaps are preventing them and their projects from performing at peak or ultimate levels. Closing these gaps can significantly improve overall project performance and enhance career opportunities. LEARN MORE and BOOK YOUR “LIVE” VIRTUAL SPEAKER HERE.
