Project Management Foundation (Small Projects) Certification
Despite the importance of project management, many workplaces do not spend time investing in small-scale project management. Smaller projects are then left without someone in charge, which only invites disorder and chaos. Project management ensures that everything goes smoothly, including the development and delivery of the product to the client.
