History, Politics & Management! This week’s projects brew touches upon all these and more. Project management is over first love. We started our training journey with programmes on project management and it has been one of the most critical pillars in our journey so far. We have been bringing Project Management thoughts, insights, tools & techniques and templates in different ways to you. The weekly projects brew is one similar attempt to share some future-shaping thoughts & knowledge to you.
