Best Practices for Managing Projects

Formerly: Project Management for Non-Project Managers

Let’s face it – we are all managing projects every day! They may be simple or more complex, but regardless of the individual’s role within the organization – managing projects is likely one of the things he/she has to do! You don’t need to be a project manager or aspire to be one to learn how to manage your projects effectively and efficiently.
