2009/2010 PROGRAM AND COURSE GUIDE
Project management has a direct impact on an organization’s strategic success, so it’s not surprising
that the project management process has received increasing attention in recent years. Project
management is now widely seen not just as marshalling organizational resources for operations, but
also as guiding all of a company’s significant changes. Because of the growing scope and complexity
of projects, top organizations now want their employees to be certified in project management.
