The margin for error with projects has all but shrunk in most organizations. We just cannot tolerate projects that don't deliver. So, how do we successfully deliver more consistently, in the real world where there are no 5 Easy Steps to Successfully Delivering Projects? Our Essentials of Project Management workshop is a practical way to get your organization on track to consistently deliver successful projects!

Although my immediate intentions do not include preparing for the PM certification, I received immense value from walking through this Essentials of Project Management virtual masterclass. The concepts & ideas taught, while certainly helpful toward preparing for the exam, offer a wide range of applications including but not limited to: being an administrator, an entrepreneur, a leader in a volunteer-based organization and even as a husband and father. Andy's professional, friendly and positive demeanor makes all the difference and he was able to really break down the concepts in a way I could easily understand. This was a great class that I'm thankful to have had the opportunity to attend.Read Less
