HI-PM1 Masterclass Project Management

Dealing with changes in an agile way: initiate changes that benefit you | 4 days

The Masterclass Project Management focusses not only on theoretical knowledge, but also on the application of the daily practice. The goal is to be able to agile deal with changes. But the bar is being raised even higher. Next to agility, it teaches project managers how to initiate changes that benefit themselves. Hereby you will achieve effective and proactive behavior.

More and more is expected from a project manager. Challenging goals, different interest of stakeholders and many dependencies between subprojects ensure increasing complexity. Having project management skills has become important on all levels in the organization.
