2020 Virtual Residency Conference Recap

Experience Our Virtual Residency Event

All Norwich University master’s degree programs culminate in a required, weeklong capstone residency in June. Residency is an exciting time for our students where they get to explore and learn our 200-year history, all while meeting their classmates and professors to form lifelong relationships.

While current circumstances around COVID-19 forced us to take our event virtual in June 2020, we filled the week with a combination of live sessions, guest speakers, social events and resources to showcase all that is Norwich. Below you will find links to view some of these sessions. Enjoy!

The project manager usually is not in a supervisory role to the members on the project team, but relies on the people on the team to contribute to the completion of the project. This presentation will cover some of the most critical skills needed to effectively lead project teams leading to the successful completion of the project.
