You will be loaded with advanced management skills with project topics demonstrating how to integrate both the “hard” skills and the “soft” skills needed by project managers to plan and control projects. The “hard” skills are the technical “mechanics” of managing a project, while the “soft” skills deal with the human issues, and ultimately, it is people who deliver results on projects.
The goal of this training course is to assist organizations in developing project managers who are aware of the strategic importance that project management plays in the achievement of the mission of their organization, and their role in leading the way to better performance and profits.
