Portland, OR — Cadence Management Corporation announces a three-day Project Management Seminar in Helsinki, Finland for April 8-10, 2003. This event follows the successful January seminar that kicked-off Cadence services to European customers and European locations of USA-based clients.

The course focuses on what attendees need today, to get projects started now, to have a sense of control and confidence as they deliver project results. Attendees are invited from all disciplines: product development, marketing, Research & Development, Quality Assurance, Engineering, Information Technologies, Finance, Logistics, Manufacturing and Administration. The three-day format includes eight workshops where class teams learn by experience to develop project plans on their current projects.

The event is hosted in partnership with Kronodoc Oy. “Cadence is pleased to extend our relationship with the Kronodoc organization to offer Cadence services to Europe,” says, John Patton, Cadence Management CEO, “Customer response to the Cadence methodology was gratifying.”

“The Cadence Project Management seminar was useful for a variety of positions from product managers to business analysts where a practical, but rigorous approach to project management is valued,” says Kimmo Karhunen, Kronodoc CEO. Kronodoc and Cadence plan to continue the seminars in 2003.

Attendees from Europe can register by contacting Ilona Kajava at ilona.kajava@kronodoc.fi. Attendees outside of Europe should contact Connie Plowman at connie.plowman@cadencemc.com in Portland, Oregon.
