This presentation was given to the Project Management Institute's Dr. Bird Chapter in Kingston Jamaica. It describes the journey undertaken by the protagonist in the book "Bill's Im-Perfect Time Management Adventure." In the third part of the book he must find a way to improve the skills of his team-members so that they can fulfill their mandate, and also avoid being laid off due to low productivity. He's forced to take some risks to realize this goal that brings him into direct confrontation with company policies and an employee who wants to see him fail. http://perfect.mytimedesign.com

Update: Several months after this speech was delivered, I gave a speech at the PMISCC conference in Trinidad. The link to the contents (audio, slides and paper) are available here - http://perfect.mytimedesign.com/calling-all-project-managers/
