Ensuring that the Project Managers in the organisation are skilled to deliver projects is of cardinal importance to an organisation, as failed projects may affect profitability, result in litigation and result in reputational risk. Project resources are scarce and organisations are under enormous pressure to delivering mission critical projects. As a result organisations cannot afford to release resources from project to attend training.
We believe a good Project Manager should have skills in people, business management, project methodologies and the theory of project management.
