Intangible Benefits: may be neglected, but you must keep them in mind, record them in the benefits register, and find ways to measure them.

What Can Sports Teach Us About Project Management?

A win in the Premier League standings is considered successful. Teams that win on a consistent basis, however, are those whose coaches are successful at leading their team with more than just knowing the rules of the game and basic strategy. Similarly, projects succeed when leaders distinguish between knowledge of the "game" and the necessary leadership skills. Successful coaches and project managers understand not only how to play the game, but also how to lead it.

ProThoughts and their support throughout was always a part of my success. Their experienced trainers and material provided by them were so useful for me. The Mock tests provided by them were very helpful as a practice test. It helped me build confidence for the PMP exam. An experienced trainer like Ashish Sir is always the cherry on the cake. His interactive way of teaching helped us understand the concepts in a very easy way. His positive attitude, clearing all doubts and conducting interactive rather boring lectures helped a lot.
