hello, project manager!

If you manage projects (or you would like to manage them) but you don’t have a certification yet, getting certified will help. If you are already certified in one or more area, adding some more could help too. In addition, don’t forget to work on improving your leadership and strategic and business management skills. It is not optional.

Enable them to achieve business results in the most effective and efficient ways. Ingrain consistent application of methods, techniques and processes deemed as best practices. There is also an option to outsource managing of your projects.

Whatever your story, this website is designed to help you find information, ideas and inspiration to move you forward and ahead of your competition.

why project management?

It is a discipline that is becoming more and more popular, as its benefits become more and more visible to businesses and organizations. Project Management Institute (PMI), the leading global professional association in this area, conducted a research study and predicted that by year 2020 millions and millions of new roles will be created globally in this profession.

Salary surveys consistently show a growing market demand for such roles, and those who are certified report higher salaries than those who are not certified, on a global scale and across many industries.

Career prospects in the profession are on the rise. And this particular line of work—leading and directing projects—seems to develop into a solid stepping stone for the C-level positions: managing a complex project can resemble running a company or a department quite a bit.

what do employers say?

Employers around the world are recognizing that too, and they have started expecting people who manage their projects to be skillful not only in technical skills specific to managing projects, but also in leadership and strategic and business management.

On the other hand, the discipline evolves in several directions and now the term often also covers program management, project portfolio management, agile practices, business analysis, organizational project management, PMO management, change management, management of complexity, business transformation, organizational agility, strategy execution, and similar.

Because of all of these, my advice is: learn, understand and practice leading and directing projects towards successful business results.
