Tags: project management

Project Management has become a crucial part of successful companies and organizations globally. Traditionally, projects fall short of producing the results expected by management.

Research shows that despite millions of dollars invested in training & implementing of project methodologies such as PRINCE2 and PMBoK, frustration still seems to be a common outcome for 73% of companies.

Studies have shown that this is caused by lack of cooperation, undesirable attitudes and lack of practical skills of problem solving. Experts have identified that all projects failures were well planned from the very beginning, even thought the planning was unintentional. The mindset of project participants assigned to key project roles is responsible for all project failures. PMR gives you an exceptional chance to constantly get right from now on.
