Project management expertise is at the core of helping organisations perform. Now, more than ever, with the speed of change, globalisation and technology advancements, organisations need to be able to change and adapt quickly and efficiently.  Projects are becoming more complex as they cross teams, disciplines, geographies, cultures and borders, therefore the demand for and demands of project and programme managers is increasing.
