KnoWerX Practice Based Project Management Workshop

For Successful Management of Projects within Time, Cost and Scope estimates


Success as a project manager depends on the ability to define, plan, organize, control and complete a variety of tasks within a finite set of resources.

KnoWerX Education India Pvt Ltd. in association with Pistis Consultancy offers a “result oriented” Project Management workshop and consulting support which enables project managers to manage their projects successfully. This workshop develops critical business knowledge, interpersonal skills and project management tools and techniques with a prime focus on development of the project managers to enable them manage the project as a holistic deliverable rather than only on managing a collection of tasks.

There will be a special focus on Theory of Constraints based Critical Chain Project Management (CCPM)
