Organizations are becoming involved in an ever-increasing array of improvement programs, high technology implementations, and new program implementations. Many otherwise competent managers are being forced to react to these changes through "crisis management", resulting in far too much effort and resources being spent on otherwise controllable initiatives. This learning event teaches individuals the basic principles of project management based on the guidelines set by the Project Management Institute.
