Project Management 2
|Lecture hours per week||2|
|Lab hours per week||2|
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.
This is an intermediate course covering more advanced concepts and functions of project management and the integration of these concepts and functions into a coherent project management system. The role of the project manager in planning, procuring outside goods and services, implementing and controlling a project is developed. The ethical and professional development standards of PMI are introduced. The course provides the learner with a more extensive understanding of the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK) as defined by the Project Management Institute (PMI). While the focus on the introductory course BUS 310 was on the basic concepts of the PMBOK and the creation of a sample project plan, this course is more concerned with the implementation and control of a project already started.
