Directing a development project for an information system is an operation filled with pitfalls, as the analysis of difficulties actually encountered will show. This course, largely based on the presenters' experience, will give you all the elements for controlling the progress of your IT projects in terms of time scale, cost and quality.


In addition, this training course complies with the project management standards in force. As a result it forms an excellent preparation for certification examinations (PMP, Afitep, etc).
