Deliver projects on time and on budget with proven skills, tools and techniques to jumpstart your project management knowledge
Research shows that less than two-thirds of projects meet their deadlines and budgets. That is why the last decade has seen a push for project management standards and best practices.
The Project Management Institute (PMI)® has had a major impact on bringing standards and best practices to the project management profession while at the same time has seen a rise in the "accidental project manager," These are professionals who do not have project management titles, but are increasingly being asked to carry out common project management responsibilities.
