All work gets done through team and projects. No matter what industry you’re in – and whether or not your title is “project manager” – it is likely that you are required to manage or be involved in project-based work. Project Management has evolved and so must you. Recognising the importance of both Project Management tools and techniques as well as human and organisational factors in achieving project success, the course enables you to learn the ‘hard’ science essential for project managers today, but with the crucial emphasis on the soft skills involved in managing people and change in order to help achieve delivery of successful projects.
Through extensive case study analysis, and with insight from current research, you will evaluate the role of the project manager in today’s workplace and critically review the rise of the project-centric organisation in a global context. You will also discuss and relate theory to practical reality in the light of the current research and understand the new best practice in project management and how it impacts organisations seeking to run effective projects, both locally and across international borders.
