PMI Talent Triangle® Workshop Bundle for PDUs (UT-PMI-TTWB)

Course Description

Every day, employers are asking more of their project managers to drive innovation and success at their companies. Possessing the core skills of project management is no longer enough. Project managers now need business and leadership skills as well. Project Management Institute Project Management Institute (PMI)® defines this combination of skills as the PMI Talent Triangle.
