The critical skills and perspectives required by today’s project managers continue to evolve and expand as projects become increasingly complex and timelines tighten.
Turning a complacent organization into a lean, pioneering market leader takes powerful project management skills. Become a master of leading-edge project management tools and Lean agility — the concept of creating the most value while minimizing resources, time, energy, and effort used — and learn a skill set valued by companies in virtually every industry. As the practice of project management expands within industries like health care, publishing, and professional services, the global economy has become more project-oriented. A 2017 survey commissioned by the Project Management Institute® anticipates project management jobs will increase 33% nationwide between 2017 and 2027. Organizations increasingly rely on technologies and the projects needed to support them, and are connecting the dots between strategy and action, working to assure that project benefits are truly delivered as expected.
