Successful Project Management (2-Day Program)

  • Face to Face


Managers are constantly called upon to manage projects or to be part of a project team. The effective management of projects – completion within a deadline and a budget, subject to performance criteria – is the cornerstone for business success. All projects are undertaken to achieve specific results and need a framework to help accomplish an important new objective; face new challenges and organizational structures, define objectives, communicate and instruct.
