Projects are everywhere.
Hiring new staff, redesigning a website, releasing a new product — all of these are projects.
Successful companies and organizations know that it pays to have a team member trained in the management of projects.
A project is a temporary endeavor undertaken to create a unique product, service, or result. It is temporary in that it has a defined beginning and end in time, and, therefore, has a defined scope and resources. Project management is the application of knowledge, skills, tools, and techniques to project activities to meet the project requirements. Even professionals without the title "project manager" find these skills and tools useful.
The Project Management Institute (PMI) is the world’s leading professional organization to standardize and codify this knowledge through PMI’s "A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge" (PMBOK® Guide), as well as certifications such as the CAPM and PMP exams. '
Who would benefit from these courses?
These courses are applicable to project managers in virtually any industry, including health, construction, information technology (IT), and business. However, by creating a "common language" around project needs - everyone can benefit from this knowledge and skills.
Salaries of PMP-certified workers are 20% higher than those of non-certified individuals.
Employers need to fill nearly 2.2 MILLION project-oriented jobs every year.
