Top PM Methodologies to Explore by HTEC Group

We are proud to announce that this year, for the first time, we are organizing our own Project Management Conference! Project Management Conference by HTEC Group will take place on September 30, 2022 – live on your screen.

PM Conference will be one full day of learning and inspiration. You’ll have the chance to learn from experts, connect with the community, and leave with some truly valuable insights.

Project Management methodologies have been developing very fast during the last couple of years, and PM professionals are constantly exploring new ways to improve and implement them. Most of them are leaning on Agile, but there is still so much more to explore both in Agile and beyond.

Feel free to check out our SPEAKERS, their bios, as well as the topics they will be focusing on.

See you!

Registrations are open, so book your place on time! The conference is FREE for all participants.
