Webster Space Coast Seminars: The Changing Architecture of Project Management
By Kimberly A. Bianco, Webster University Space Coast Project Management Certification Program
With today's projectized world, management of simple and complex projects has become part of the critical skill set needed by multi-generational leaders for success. Increased expectations are due to corporate initiatives and growth strategies, decreased product life cycles, goals of entering new markets, global expansion plans along with being part of a diversified team. Organizations often lack training and expertise that provide a clear blueprint for the project management strategy to implement these complex initiatives. The seminar will provide the theoretical framework for project management, the disciplined, yet flexible approach to project management, and soft-skills and hard-tools needed to plan and manage projects effectively locally and globally.
