Project Management Trends

With the first quarter of the year almost done and dusted, we hope that 2015 is treating you well! We are constantly looking at ways to improve and expand our offerings, and have a host of new offerings for you. If you perform business analysis functions on your projects, check out the Mastering Business Analysis and PMI-PBA certification preparation programme and for those of you who are implementing Agile techniques on your projects, check out the PMI-ACP certification preparation programme and APMGs AgilePM Foundation and Practitioner certifications.
