AmCham Friday University Session "Project Management: Securing Project Success"


The role of project management skills in everyday work is difficult to underestimate. According to surveys, 31% of projects are canceled before finished. That's why to complete the project on time, on budget and on scope all people involved need to understand its critical success factors as well as how they as individuals and team can contribute to achieving project objectives.

The Event was organized jointly with member company ASCENDIS. Ascendis, consultancy and training company, shared with participants the recipe of a project success.

Session was conducted in the form of project simulation with the ability to prepare, inspire, commit and qualify project members to contribute fully to future projects with a deeper understanding of the critical success factors of a project. It was the ideal way to warm up a project team and bring out the best in each participant!
