Course Assessment: Exam & Coursework
This module examines project management roles and environments, the project life cycle and various techniques of work planning, and control and evaluation to achieve project objectives. Emphasis will be placed on practical application of project-management principles, processes, and techniques, including project control, cost management, project tracking, and project outsourcing. Students will also learn how to control project schedules, budgets, and scope, using methods that minimize or completely eliminate “scope creep.” Techniques such as fast-tracking, critical-path crashing, stochastic estimating, and exploiting activity lead-lag times will enable students to develop fast, accurate project schedules.
