In his essay, Erkan mentions the importance Project Management in a “Global Economy”… “The skills required to be a strong project manager have changed significantly over the past several years, as the rate of technological change has continued to increase, the amount of uncertainly that a project manager must deal with has increased as well.”

During his acceptance of this prestigious award, Erkan mentioned he will “Forever be grateful to PMI Great Lakes Chapter for providing him with this honor and opportunity”.

The PMI Great Lakes Chapter Executive committee congratulates Erkan on this award and wishes him the best for a bright future.
