Emerging managers and leaders require transferable skills that will aid them to lead projects and teams in the future, however uncertain. Increasing organizational complexity and ambiguity requires clear, and people-focused, leadership. Stand-alone projects are no longer viewed as separate to operations, they are connected to organizational outcomes and strategic planning initiatives. This 8-week online micro-credential aims to equip learners with the confidence, creativity, and capability to lead projects, themselves, and teams and enhance their contribution to an organization and strengthening the capability and capacity within it.

Leading Projects in a Digital Environment can be used as a pathway to the Graduate Certificate in Management and Leadership. There are also additional pathway options for those who have successfully completed the program and are interested to ladder into a formal credential at Royal Roads University.
