Project Management Resources

Project management is a field that focuses on ensuring projects come in on time, on budget, and to specifications. In view of the tight state of the economy and the need to eliminate waste, more and more organizations are seeing the need to invest in project management. Fortune Magazine calls it, "Career Number 1."

According to Ayana Nickerson, CompTIA Project+ Program Manager, "Industry research indicates that 74% of all IT projects fail, come in over budget or are overdue. And 28% of projects fail all together. These statistics are alarming, especially in light of the current situation of the global economy. Companies are looking for qualified individuals that have the knowledge to successfully bring in projects on time and under budget".

Ideas are not enough. You must be action oriented to improve your future.



Don't just think but act. You get results not only from thinking but from acting.



You have ideas. You want to achieve. You want opportunity.



But what are you still doing in your comfort zone? The comfort zone is a dangerousplace.



"I wanted to", "I was going to" cannot put on a light bulb, not to talk of moving you forward.



Aren't you tired of hoping and criticizing? Stop defending status quo that locks you down.



GO on the offensive now with IT Education and Empowerment.



What is the use of ideas without action?



Start becoming the achiever you deserve to be.
