Successful project planning, execution, and implementation are key components to any business, anywhere.  Across the globe, there’s a widening gap between employers’ need for skilled project management workers and the availability of professionals to fill those roles.  The shortage of qualified talent poses a prominent risk for organizations that rely on that talent to implement strategic initiatives, drive change and deliver innovation.  The talent gap could result in a potential loss of some US$207.9 billion in GDP through 2027 for 11 countries.  Source: Project Management Job Growth and Talent Gap Report // 2017-2027
