Improving Your Project Management Skills: The Basics for Success

As the business world grows more competitive, organizations find it necessary to take on an increasing number of projects.

While aligned with the Project Management Institute’s (PMI) framework, this course is specifically designed to focus on the practical application of concepts. You’ll return to work with the knowledge and tools you need to get your projects started right and completed successfully.
