Project Management with Simulation - Advanced

Project management has evolved from an auxiliary tool into an essential and interdisciplinary field. Technical expertise alone is no longer enough — in the modern company, you must be able to productively apply your knowledge to projects and endeavours.
Apart from the fundamental knowledge (see Project Management Fundamentals), numerous other factors are needed to successfully execute and complete a project. You need to be able to anticipate and eliminate various stumbling blocks.
