Internally, this can cause paralysis and inhibit your growth; externally, it can affect your reputation and prevent you from making sales.
This interactive one-day course will give you an excellent grounding in project management, whatever their size and scope. It is packed with practical tools and essential resources to help you deliver your projects on time, to budget and as specified - and to build a reputation for steadfast efficiency.
