Overview

Projects exist in a complex real world environment and the primary purpose of projects is to achieve benefits for the organisation. Hence it is necessary for a project manager to understand how a project is related to the business, environment and other projects. This course provides the necessary knowledge and skills for understanding and applying the project processes and how they are related to other business operations. It also develops an essential ‘systems thinking’ approach to project management which is vital in understanding the complexity and dynamics of a project and its operating environment.

In this course students will learn about project processes, business processes and the relationships between them. Project plan development, project control and project lifecycle development will also be covered. Complex systems and systems thinking approach for project management will be examined in detail.
