In today’s competitive business climate, there is an increasing demand to decrease costs and inefficiencies and to incorporate practices that bring value through higher production and better quality. With an expectation of increased returns on investment, collaborative, project-style work and change management have become key methods to drive results. However, most organizations face challenges that lead to projects that fail to meet their objectives, despite being funded and managed by highly capable professionals.
The difference between project success and the inability to see projects through to successful completion is professionals who have the fundamental project management skills required to drive progress and deliver value.
Project management is a broad term often applied to a number of different jobs within a company. No matter your department, your background or your experience level, you will add value to your organization with applicable project management skills.
