Advanced Project Management

It is seldom the technical issues that derail projects – it is people issues. Added to these issues is the fact that most projects are matrix-based, meaning that team members are managed by departmental managers within the organization – not the project manager. An effective project manager must be able to deal with the people issues on their projects in order that they can complete their projects on time, budget, and scope.
