Communication & Collaboration skills for Project & Program Professionals:
"Professionals need to focus on a strong relation with their clients. Relations that are based on value. Commiting, extending and strenghting your relations requires multiple skills. Not merely technical but also more soft skills like communication and collaboration.Nancy McKinstry CEO Wolters Kluwer
Technical knowledge and individual performance criteria are no longer enough in the professional project world. Recent studies show that clients and stakeholder expect more from their professional advisors.
