Aug 02, 2018 Espaitec

Did you know that those companies which generally use project management to fulfil their objectives obtain a 92% success rate as opposed to one of 32% for those that do not? And that the companies which employ PMI methodologies waste much less money on failed projects at a rate of 1.4% as opposed to 29.1%?

On Thursday 13 September we will organise a new Espaitec business breakfast during which basic project management aspects and their methodologies for implementing successful business strategies will be made known. To this end, we will be visited by Miguel Femenia Cholbi, the Chair of the Valencia Section of the Project Management Institute (PMI). Attendance is free by previously registering with this form.
