PMI South Africa
Projects and project management have become important to the transformation of South African economy and society. “Projectification”, a concept coined in 1995, means the ever increasing share of work that is done through projects.
This is not only at a company or organizational level, but at government and societal levels, too. This is a global phenomenon that has reached South Africa. Projects and project management are more than schedules, charts and other tools. They are about value creation and social processes we use to deliver benefits.
