Situation Management Training in Denver & Phoenix

When the challenges surrounding the project are greater than the challenges of the project, situation management is required. Project management skills are the key to attaining goals, but understanding the situation surrounding a project is essential to assuring success. Learn to connect project management with business goals with our Situation Management training class.

Just as a perfect 3 Iron shot from 10 yards out can do more harm than good, well run projects without an understanding of the situation can badly miss their mark. Knowing the context for a project is critical to achieving both a successfully completed project and a contribution to the goals of the company.
