¶ … Great Escape
One of the biggest challenges facing most organization is maintaining effective control of projects and how managers are trained in dealing with a host of issues. For large entities, this is problematic because it means that they could see declines in productivity and the utilization of different resources.

I'm not afraid of my school, my teachers, my streets, but somehow inside of me, there is some fear: I know things are different.
