Careers that adequately solve business needs will always be in-demand. Despite populist trends like BREXIT and TRUMP in the West, globalization and international trade will always shape organizational goals and objectives. Despite numerous studies (McKinsey, 2012; Geneca, 2010; KPMG, 2010; IBM, 2008; GAO, 2008) on the failure rate of local projects, there is a higher propensity for International Projects to fail. According the conference paper published by Project Management Institute (PMI) on critical success factor in project management, formally established Project Manager with “competency” has the highest influence on project success (Seweryn, 2005).
In this workshop, we will be upgrading candidates with “international competence” – a requirements profile for an International Project Manager. Candidates will also have the option to become internationally certified with International Project Manager Credential by International Association of Project Management (IAPM). All participants will have the opportunity to FREE practical workshop on How to get a Job at United Nations. This comes with 12 Professional Development Units for PMI credential holders.
