About the Presentation:
The objective is to present attendees with firsthand knowledge of working Project Management in the industry of Consumer Goods. The presenter Ron Renati, PMP will be sharing his personal experience in the journey of adapting the tools and techniques of PMI with his current employer, Nestle. It is relatively new for fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG) companies, like Nestle, to adapt PMI tools into their business process. The presenter is planning to share few of his experiences like; the challenges faced during the development of their new business tools, the improvement to the innovation & renovation of products and processes, the drive to continuous improvement etc. This journey within Nestle helped in creating greater value products, there enhancing their current market share.
