Project Management is an incredibly powerful skill for accelerating your career – and you might be surprised to hear you are probably managing a project right now! Managing a big project is often a pivotal moment in your life and yet it’s also one most people aren’t trained for… and it’s very common to get wrong. Whether it’s organising a wedding, launching a new product, or getting a spaceship on the moon, Project Management is what keeps this world turning.
