Latest module now launched - Capability development

At the most fundamental level, managing a project means delivering a piece of work as successfully as possible. This includes both what is delivered, for example the end product, service or outcome, and how it is delivered, that is the process or path that’s used to get there.

In this latest module we look at what we mean by capability development, and what it means for you in your work as a project manager.

Keep an eye out for new modules coming to APM Learning soon ...
