Project management skills have long been recognized as important to the engineering and development sides of all organizations. Recently, however, the business industry is realizing that the planning and action skills necessary in project management are applicable in all areas of the organization.

Project Managment roles are expected to increase by over 13.4 million between 2010 and 2020, numbering more than 41.5 million by 2020.
