Project Management is one of the top ten technology skills in demand and an area in which companies are currently hiring, even in the current economy. Evolving trends show an increased demand for quality products and services, requiring a disciplined approach to managing projects. Federal agencies are increasingly specifying in Requests for Proposals that organizations have certified project managers on their staff.
