PM Industry Insights - DO YOU MOOC? Learn new skills just-in-time!


The 40-year career is gone, replaced by lifelong learning and diverse career paths. How do you keep up-to-date while working full time? Do you have to upskill to meet new job requirements or changing assignments? Digital and virtual learning is well-established, accelerating, and will be the new normal. How can teams and organizations use MOOC’s? How can this be part of employee workforce transition?

Don’t suffer from FOMO (fear of missing out) and learn about the new opportunities for project managers in the Massive Open Online Course revolution.

Join this session on 20 October to learn how to gain new knowledge!
