Project Management, Continuing Education Workforce Certificate
Project managers organize and manage resources to take projects from initial concept through to successful completion on time, on budget, and in conformance with customer requirements. They are often hired as contracted Project Managers and, as an incumbent, they may be assigned to lead a company project.
