Introduction To Project Management Professional (PMP) Programme

Overview

In recent times, there is a growing demand, in organisations, for efficiency in the use of time and resources.

More businesses increasingly adopt a project-based paradigm to meet their business goals.

Project Management is used to initiate, plan, execute, monitor, control, and closeout projects by applying appropriate skills, knowledge, tools and techniques to fulfil the project requirements and in planning actionable strategies and implementing solutions to challenges as they arise.

With current disruptive technologies, project managers need to be keen on emerging issues such as expanding automation and artificial intelligence, the increasing business value of “soft skills”, a growing tendency for method melding, shifting, globalized gig economy, increasingly competitive landscape, human-centered design and a greater focus on data.
