BMGT3002S Management of projects and project-based organisations

Academic Year 2021/2022

In recent years there has been a rapid growth in the use of project management methods and tools as a means by which organisations achieve their objectives. Projects drive business activities in a wide variety of sectors, from private sector manufacturing and service companies, to government and public sector organisations and not for profit charities and humanitarian groups. Irrespective of the product or service sector, good project management techniques will provide a result that is delivered on time and within budget. In this regard, the module will cover topics such as planning, scheduling, budgeting, quality, leadership and risk management which are some of the key issues that need to be understood and practiced by managers to realise successful project delivery. The module focuses on project organisation (functional, hybrid, task force), principles (anticipation vs flexibility) and contingencies (uncertainty, relevance)
