Project based work is the new norm in business. Effective Project Management is of paramount importance for project success and consequently business success.
This course is designed for an MBA level study into Project Management. In this course students will consider and critically evaluate the problems associated with project selection, evaluation of projects and project managers, managing project teams and communicating with all parties involved. Students will become involved in presentations, discussions, extensive case studies, role playing exercises and so address the key aspects of project management.
This course will examine closely the effects of project management upon business needs, and how project management can establish a firm foundation for managing project and non-project work, independently of sector. Students will be introduced to techniques of selecting, initiating, planning, monitoring, controlling and closing projects in order to maximise the success of the project and the profitability of the organisation they operate. The most widely accepted methodology based on the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK 5th edition), as well as a number of modern books and approaches to Project Management will be presented and tested.
