This course provides an overview of the theory and practice of managing any project in any organization. The fundamental building blocks of project management are addressed, including project planning, organizing, team building and effective control mechanisms. Students will be introduced to entrepreneurship and its role in corporate projects. Students gain a solid understanding and foundation to successfully manage each phase of the project life cycle, work within organizational and cost constraints, set goals lined directly to stakeholder needs and utilize proven management tools to complete the project on time and within budget. Students apply the essential concepts, processes and techniques that are used in the management of large scale governmental or commercial programs. The key management aspects and proven techniques that differentiate project management from other types of management are fully addressed.
Managing the human elements of project management is as challenging as mastering the technical aspects. Innovative approaches are employed to successfully motivate, communicate, negotiate and resolve conflicts among the team members and stakeholders. In this course, students develop an understanding of the individual, the group and the project team. Proven techniques to make conflict a constructive rather than a destructive experience are discovered. Students develop effective communication, negotiation and conflict resolution skills to successfully lead both domestic and global projects.
The focus of this course is to use the tools and techniques of project planning, scheduling and allocating resources. Students design work breakdown structures, identify work packages, allocate resources and develop project schedules using standard networking techniques. Students are introduced to techniques for estimating, forecasting, budget monitoring, controlling and reporting project costs. Students apply modern project management concepts and tools to real world projects through the use of carefully selected case studies and project simulations. Students will use project management software for creating schedules.
