Leading Project Teams

GK# 0504

Course Overview

TOP

There is no question that the role of a project leader is becoming more and more challenging. Projects are increasing in size and complexity and as a result, project teams are becoming larger and more diverse making projects more difficult to lead. Additionally, as many organizations execute multiple projects concurrently, project leaders and team members may find themselves stretched across a number of projects at the same time.
