According to PMForum Management Editor David Pells, “We have many readers and followers on the Indian Subcontinent, and somewhat surprisingly, in Pakistan. We want to offer this special discount not only in those living in those two countries but in neighboring countries too. Programs and projects in those countries are critical for both economic development and stability in the region; we want to help educate project managers and team members so more of those projects are successful.”
“We plan to make this same offer to those living in other regions of the world in the future,” he adds. “Although these courses are already low priced, compared to those offered in America and Europe, we thought an additional discount would be helpful. Although low cost, these are high quality learning and testing programs, useful for professionals and organizations in any country.”
