Webinar: Embracing Agile Successfully - For Organisational and Personal Transformation 

 

A group of professionals met recently at a PMI Singapore Chapter session to analyse what challenges and obstacles we face in the project management space.

How do we move away from traditional ways when becoming agile could optimise the way we deliver value to our stakeholders?
