Course Overview

Regardless of industry size, project-driven or not, companies (core as well as ITES) can leverage project management capability into a competitive advantage by completing work on time and on the budget in an environment which reinforces alignment with organisational strategy.

In the past, many projects failed due to limited knowledge of project management by the team leaders and managers. The non – repetitive, irreversible nature of these activities and huge capital investments makes the knowledge of scientific and advanced skills mandatory for the proper management of projects. The challenges have only further been enhanced due to digital technologies as well as COVID 19 pandemic. For example, understanding software project management is a key success factor along with technical skills for IT architects.
