Life is a VICIOUS-CYCLE PROJECT. Wanna know how to manage?

General description

Hey you, let’s say a future manager!

Have you ever wondered how the people from Istanbul manage their life in such hurry? Have you ever struggled while managing your projects? I hear you say YES! Then here we come along with awesome news and opportunities for you.

Let’s begin with the first question.

“Have you ever wondered how the people from Istanbul manage their life in such hurry?”

Imagine yourself in a city with over 15M people where the history touches every corner of it. A huge amount of your time is taken by the traffic and you still have to MANAGE your life, your economy and your entertainment even thought you might want to enjoy the city. The city where beautiful stories come from, two continents met 12.000 years ago and make us the 7th largest city in Europe now.

Remember the second question?

“Have you ever struggled while managing your projects?”

You struggled through your projects; such as failing your time management, losing your files right before a presentation, setting your social life back over work etc. Don’t you think it is getting more like a vicious cycle? If yes, we have a process to help you achieve almost perfect management called “PROJECT CYCLE MANAGEMENT (PCM)”. You will learn the basis of PCM and terms like “Life-Cycle of a Project, Cost-Benefit Analyses and Knowledge Management etc.”

Isn’t it enough already? Let us give you more about Istanbul… We’re pretty sure you’ll remember every single moment of your stay and spend all your time surrounded by historical beauties, delicious Turkish cuisine and awesome organizers. Apart from these the concept parties -we’ll have EVERY NIGHT- will last till the first sunlight hits The Bosphorus.
