    Ekondo Okia Cameroon I really came to realize that I was still studying the Fundamentals to Project Management only when I was almost done with the course due to the fact that the case study here was an electronic system e.g ICT. All along I have been wondering if project management is to learn how to develop an information system. It was later on that I came to understand that project management is to lay down procedures to to achieve the desired result at the shortest time possible, minimizing cost at all levels and not neglecting safety/security measures too. I wish to say thank you to the Alison Team for helping me upgrade my knowledge as far as this course is concern. 2015-04-03 00:04:33
