About this Unit
Management of Projects introduces students to the role of projects in organizations and the associated issues in managing projects, including the management of project teams and project lifecycles. While project management is well understood in areas such as construction and information systems, this unit also covers its use in other business applications, such as product development, advertising and promotional campaigns, organizational change and the implementation of corporate strategy. The use of cases, simulations and other exercises allows students to gain a realistic appreciation of the issues involved in managing projects. A range of project management tools and techniques are demonstrated through these case studies.
