Time for some facts.
The pace of change is quickening. Today’s organization needs to adapt or die.
Folks who can implement that change are gold-dust to any organization. Sure, operations management is needed, but they just manage what you’ve already got – project managers implement what you NEED.
It’s no accident that the project management industry is set to grow by $6.6 trillion in the next THREE years, and in that timeframe, will NEED 45 million jobs in project management.
Want to get on that train?
Have you noticed how many “managers” let it drop that they are running a “project” (often nothing more than an “assignment”. It gives them instant bragging rights.
Project Management provides the warp and woof of commerce and you will be paid handsomely – particularly if you are QUALIFIED. A recent study showed that a PRINCE2 Practitioner will earn 18% more than their peers.
The earning power of a project manager is into six figures – more than many lawyers and doctors.
But above that, a project manager earns RESPECT both from senior management and customers alike – priceless!

Project management is never boring – but it is stressful and the responsibility for other people’s money and your team can be intense. They will look to the project manager to provide solutions and put out fires.
Critical thinking is key here, but of no use whatever if the sand keeps shifting beneath your feet.
PRINCE2 gives you back control, explains why you DON’T need to plan in detail at the start, and why the customer is NOT always right. Instead, PRINCE2 gives you a solid reference to manage against, stop “scope creep” dead in its tracks, prioritise and plan options, while building the project products right – in addition to building the right products.
PRINCE2 gives you a controlled System for Success – a project framework instead of project chaos and blame
Peace of mind and confidence in yourself and the project team to deliver …consistently.
Fear, doubt, pressure with trial and error methods are removed, and replaced instead with a process set of friendly checklists tools and templates.
