project management news

Here at Your Project Manager we consider it our job to keep on top of all that is project management not just here in Queensland and Australia, but also worldwide. Just like others across all walks of life, we have our favourite online project management resources which help us to keep abreast of all the latest news, views, and advances in our sphere of expertise.

In the same way that you and your business use market knowledge to keep ahead of your competition, so it helps us to maintain the leading position of project management advice and on-site training.
