FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (June 20, 2011) – “Project Work Plan: The Process,” a new eLearning course from ZweigWhite, examines the various work plan options available, their significance to project managers, and makes the case for the use of collaborative approaches.

The course is designed and presented by Stephen C.
