Project Management Made Simple
In today’s environment, one can hardly find himself or herself in a situation where you only do your job as you are hired to do. In most instances, you are required from time to time to take on project responsibilities. This is good, because it allows you the opportunity to learn, grow, handle people, deadlines, slim budgets and tasks in such a way that will help your career growth and thus the organization. This also means continuous improvement for the organization that you work for/with. In this practical and interactive course, the person entrusted with managing projects will learn the process described above. Since success or failure depends largely on how we handle ourselves and others, and only then the technical skills and planning tools, the focus of this training will consist of areas relating to these two spectra on project management and project achievements.
