Master Class 
Project Management

Project Management (PM) is accepted as a tool that contributes to reaching the objectives of the organization.

Furthermore Project Management allows us to organize our daily work on a project management base.


The master class is aimed at all who work on projects and those who want to change daily routine work by applying project management techniques.


Project management is in many cases linked to a change process that will support the objectives of the organization.  Understanding the stakeholders in a change process will contribute to the success of the Project Management. Focus on the soft skills as it is all about people management.
