Major investments are already appearing with funds starting to flow in from China, South Africa and other countries.

Free access is also available for a limited time to those signing up for the Free Trial membership.

“We will work with Peter Banda and his team at the Project Management Zimbabwe association to let project management professionals across the country know about the free library registration,” Pells adds. “As in all countries, knowledge sharing and continuous learning in project management are needed and important. I hope we can provide a useful resource for positive change there.”
