Project Management Master Class
Good project management is vital to business success
In today’s highly competitive business world, more and more organizations are moving to a project approach. Whether launching a new, multi-million-dollar product or planning an office move, project management will enable you to deliver high-quality results on time and within budget.
Just as important, it provides a framework for continuous learning and improvement.
Successful project management is about good systems and good leadership, to be sure, but it’s also about exercising good judgement when required. This course will help you develop all three of these skills. It aims to impart what I believe are the 50 most important project management secrets I’ve learnt along the way. These secrets are divided into seven key lessons:
