About the training

#adapted to individual needs   #improve understanding of project management   #practice proven   #changes behaviors

Project management is a young and vivid profession. PMI estimates that today 66 million professionals consider themselves project managers, up to 90 million in 2030. PMI reframed project management to ’make ideas a reality’, project management professionals are the individuals to reduce uncertainty and solve problems. Anywhere. Increasing speed of change, digitalization, VUCA, and disruptions can only be contained by becoming better in project management. Not many governments and companies have achieved a level of maturity that provides measurable results. Not many universities are yet teaching project management. Based on 45 years working in projects, 32 years of leading projects, programs, PMOs and 20 years teaching project management I offer you to become better in project management. All workshops can be followed up with individual coaching.
