Project management is today an important competence for most companies, but the road to success can sometimes be quite long – and seem exhausting to project managers and everyone involved. But what sort of project management actually underlies the success? And what sort of project management rarely succeeds? What is it that the talented project managers are able to do?

With a project manager education, you will be given the tools needed in order to manage projects from beginning to end. After the course, you will be able to – with success – assess pivotal issues in a project as well as complete projects with others. You will learn about project management models and theory, communication tools and management tools.
