They need to grow critical project management competencies and learn how to overcome the biggest challenges on projects.

From my experience, Becoming a PM for the first time is like being left in a jungle, where you have to learn to find your way, hunt for food, train and shield your herd from external dangers, and keep the jungle king happy. Also, on the journey, there are a lot of landmines that you need to avoid as they can blow you and your herd.

Sounds Familiar!

Don’t worry; each one of us PMs had or will traverse this jungle many times in our career.

My course will give you enough tips to traverse this jungle and build your confidence to emerge as a successful project manager.
