21st Century project manager webinar
Posted by APM on 3rd Sep 2013
Peter Taylor gave a webinar recently that aimed to stimulate thoughts about where we should all be focusing our efforts in order to deal with the '21st Century' challenges that project managers face.
Organisations demand that the projects that they commission these days are successful in order to meet their increasingly aggressive strategic goals, and for this to be possible the project managers that lead these strategic projects need to be the very best that they can be. But these very projects are also becomingly more challenging.
Peter's webinar can be viewed below.
