Today, project management is essential for achieving desirable business results. The objective of this course is to acquaint students with generally recognized good practices in project management. Good project management practices are exemplified in the context of Information Technology (IT) in this course. However, these practices are general and applicable to all projects in many contexts. Therefore, the course is not specific to those who will manage information technology projects. The course is useful to those who will manage projects in any context.
This course takes a broad view of project management and emphasizes on nine project management knowledge areas—project integration, scope, time, cost, quality, human resource, communications, risk, and procurement management. Course contents are closely in line with Project Management Institute’s guidelines to provide a solid framework for managing projects in various contexts.
This course is designed to familiarize students with issues related to project management and to introduce them possible approaches and techniques that can be used to alleviate or eliminate those issues. This course provides students with an understanding of principles, frameworks and techniques of project management and how to apply them in diverse and complex settings such as in the IT setting.
