Project Management Professional

Project management is critical to the success of every organization. Industry research indicates that 74% of all projects hit roadblocks, are over budget or are late. And 28% of these projects fail altogether. Project managers face constant pressure to cut costs, implement projects quickly, and deliver high quality. Without thoughtful planning, execution and monitoring of efforts, organizations will lose business to those that effectively manage their projects. Whether your goal is to learn the basics of project management, become certified in project management, or learn project management software, New Horizons has the courses and training you need.
