The industrialization around the globe is accelerating rapidly with the ongoing technical evolution and a shifting competitive landscape. Today, we are moving towards a project-based economy where work is divided into small pieces, each with a clearly defined scope and concrete deliverables. While many projects are still traditional inside roles, project work is migrating to experienced professionals who can run and manage one or many projects without hassles. But it isn’t as easy as it sounds; organizations have a tendency to frequently underestimate the challenges involved while embarking on a project.

The demand for better project managers is on the rise as there is a steady influx of twisted obstacles and the need for a contingency plan becomes a must. Resolving issues, completion of projects cheaply, proactive risk management, delivering high quality end products are all in the line when it comes to managing a project. However, with limited resources and an over-abundance project opportunities, organizations and their project management offices struggle in project and program identification, selection, execution and benefits realization. Most of the time organizations fail to alter their project management skills and end up in a declined economic margin.
