The course provides an overview of project management and its role in achieving organisational outcomes. It examines how projects are created and managed across their lifecycle, how key stakeholders influence project objectives and outcomes, and the organisational structure that is needed to provide project resources. It looks at how to identify, define and deliver the project outcomes and deliverables, and how to identify and manage the time frame and the financial resources required to deliver project outcomes. It considers how to achieve the appropriate quality of project processes and outcomes, how to manage any risks to those outcomes, and how to manage the processes by which any project deliverables are provided by external parties. It examines how to bring together all project resources and processes to ensure a successful project outcome, and how to develop appropriate competencies to manage a small to medium project.
