We dive a little deeper into the depths of cloud and beyond the veil of technology into the human element of a project. We find out how it’s best to tackle a cloud project from beginning to end and more importantly what not to do.

Xtravirt’s Craig Whelan indulges us with the wealth of knowledge he's acquired as a Project Manager within the virtualisation space and gives us a unique perspective from on, beyond and behind the front line.

He covers topics such as:

⦁        Critical success factors 

⦁        What methodologies, tools and techniques are used and which are best 

⦁        How do you deal with change 

⦁        What conflicts can arise and how can they be dealt with
