PPS E-learning

In today’s modern world, organisations are continually changing, reviewing and updating their capabilities. Implementing new strategies and initiatives will typically be delivered by targeted programmes and / or projects. These programmes and projects require a champion and sponsor to be accountable for successful delivery.
