Project management involves leading a diverse group of employees who are working in an environment that is highly dependent upon planning, limited by budget and scheduling controls and subject to constant progress evaluations.
You can make project management a positive work experience through understanding project functions from start to finish. Become a better project manager or team member by participating in this “Project Management” workshop!
