Accelerate beyond the competitionExcel – to perform well
We will have sub-managers as we get farther along in the project.We will often break up into smaller teams under each sub-manager to accomplish tasks.We know our team manager has to be organized and on top of everything, and we have already seen Pete’s ability to do this. Our sub-managers will be able to control each phase/part of the project. Because the project is so large, our smaller groups will be able to accomplish more than everyone working on one thing at a time.
