Description:

Project management is a professional field supported by a body of knowledge and research across many disciplines. Project management is an essential management process that can make the difference between an information system project's failure and success. Unfortunately, many IT projects have been poorly managed, delivered behind schedule, and/or over budget. This course applies the nine project management knowledge areas – project integration, scope, time, cost, quality, human resources, communications, risk and procurement management, across the project management lifecycle of initiation, planning, executing, controlling and closing. The use of computer-based project management tools and techniques suitable for IT project management is also emphasized and form a vital part of the student's skills and knowledge portfolio. Students will have the opportunity of working together with various configurations / other members in a project team.
