Project management is key to delivering strategic value within an organisation and it involves far more than a time plan, a budget and a risk register. Projects can range from construction of a new building to the launch of new product, or outsourcing previous in house functions, to the re-engineering of products, services and processes.
The module aims:
to explore how project management can enable an organisation to improve results and deliver change.
to help the organisation deliver projects of high quality, on time and within budget
to consider the methodologies available to manage projects, such as PRINCE2
