Often considered a science due to its technical analysis and methodology grounded in theory, project management skills are transferable and relevant to almost every industry. Project management career positions are diverse in nature and can be found in construction and development companies to software design and IT companies. More recently project management has established itself as a profitable and sustainable career choice for many individuals within the business world and has been shown as a great place to start on the path to C-level positions.
Project management itself, however, is far more than just a position title or career choice.
