Records, IG, and Baseball Card Collecting: 3 Exercises in “Need It,” “Got It,” and “Ditch It”

Presenter: Steve Weissman, Sr. Project Manager & IG Expert, Valora Technologies

  • Identify applications to apply these tools to
  • Gain insight into how to convince others to invest the time and money needed to succeed
