Subject Information

To be effective, project managers must understand relationships between operational factors and projects. In this subject, students learn about scope, time and cost planning, developing an appropriate work breakdown structure (WBS). Students will also learn about the importance of managing project change, quality and risk, as well as the role of effective stakeholder communications in achieving successful project outcomes. They engage in practical exercises designed to help them develop project management skills. Students also examine planning considerations associated with global projects.

In this subject, students implement a project plan and manage progress by applying performance reporting, analysis, and measurement techniques to ensure that activities are executed as planned. This will include responding to risk events and issues; managing scope changes; communicating with team members and stakeholders; acceptance of deliverables, and administrative and financial closure.

The process of creation, from conception through distribution, is complicated and requires a diverse set of management skills. Students in this subject are introduced to the knowledge, tools, and techniques needed to manage projects successfully throughout a project life cycle, and to the language used by practitioners in conjunction with the terminology recognised by the Project Management Institute (PMI). Students explore the project management knowledge areas and process groups of the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK) guide. Students also examine the ways these two dimensions of project management interact in initiating (scoping), planning, executing (launching), monitoring and controlling, and closing a project.

In this subject, students learn the integrative nature of project management and develop skills to coordinate the various project management processes and activities. Students formulate appropriate project life cycle and apply the PMBOK project management process groups to their selected case study. They update the project management plan and other artefacts impacted by the change management process. Students evaluate environmental factors influencing project outcomes and develop effective management strategies. They apply a range of communication media to manage stakeholder relationships.
