Time pressures, complexity of project work, and a lack of sufficient resources make working on projects challenging and difficult. From concept to completion many people are confronted with unique deliverables.

Virtually every industry, organisation and profession is impacted by the need to deliver projects on time, within budget and to client satisfaction. It is therefore critically important for those leading in this efficiency-driven environment to familiarise themselves with the dynamic processes associated with project management.
