Education & Consulting Partners

Project Business: A Market Needs Your Help.

Cross-corporate projects contribute a major share to national and global economies. However, most people involved are poorly trained and prepared for project business.

The reason: Despite the significance of the business-driven project economy, there is not much education and consulting support available for practitioners to help overcome troubles and ensure that the parties involved, customers and contractors, can meet their joint project objectives and business goals. 

Practitioners in project business mostly learn by trial and error. However, trial in project business is expensive and error even more.

This is a business case for experts: Project management, both traditional and agile, has many players competing in a mature training, coaching, and consulting market, driven by a big number of late adopters. This maturity comes with price pressure and makes it hard to do a profitable expert business.

Today, project business management is a topic for early adopters in training, consulting, etc. For your customers, it is high risk business, risks that are rarely fully understood. Business risks and conflicts directly impact project success. Therefore, companies involved need help. The Project Business Foundation is there to turn this need for help into demand and the demand into business for qualified experts.
