|Course unit overview||
Project management practices are becoming increasingly important to organisations across sectors. Project and programmes are the main vehicles by which organisations (public and private) embark on deliberate and proactive change and through which organisations can achieve their strategic goals. For example projects and programmes provide facilities to enable operations, information systems to support operations, and infrastructure to enable supply chains. In other words, project and programmes create new value. This course will explore this value creation process aiming to develop a critical understanding of the principles and practice of managing projects. The course is structured along five organisational themes: Strategy, structure, processes, capabilities and incentives; which we will explore across the project lifecycle.
