Course Description:

What distinguishes projects from business-as-usual operations is that projects introduce change; therefore, change is a fundamental goal of every project. Yet, many people resist change for various reasons. This resistance, if not accounted for in project delivery strategies, can lead to significant risks jeopardizing the attainment of project objectives.
