The campus community and members of the public are invited to a free webinar at noon Thursday, Feb. 21, about how to select projects with a focus on strategic and financial factors.

The webinar, titled "Project Selection: The $1 Trillion Decisions," will be presented by Leonard Nethercutt, instructor in the Master of Science in Operations Management Program.

Attendees will learn project selection methods and tips to help your organization make a positive impact on the future of your business.
Nethercutt's business background and experience include several closely held entrepreneurial ventures that run the gamut from management and tax consulting/representation services, multi-state retail operations in partnership with major oil companies, wholesale petroleum distributor, software development, and licensed investment adviser representative. His roles generally aligned with the functions performed by the CEO/CFO.
Nethercutt is a full-time instructor with the MSOM program and started with the program in 1997 as an adjunct instructor.
