    The upheaval of the past two years has caused both companies and employees to reassess the future and search for a new path forward. RI Bio’s Project Management Essentials can be the path to new skills that help your employees advance and that help fill the talent pipeline for a sustainable future.

    The program builds more competent workers and leaders, which in turn helps people advance or start new careers with sustainable, valuable work. Participants will learn how projects are conceived, how to proceed through the phases of a project lifecycle, and how critical processes such as change, risk and quality management are applied to ensure a successful project.
