Project Management in Context (MMGT6013)


Projects are key to the success of organisations be it through the introduction of new products, the implementation of new processes or the opening of new markets. It is not enough though for you to deliver a project in isolation. You need to consider how your projects fits with other projects and the broader organisation. The foundation of this unit is the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK) where you will learn the essential components of project management and how to manage a project to success. Building upon this you will also learn how to maximise the value of your project. You will come to understand the benefits, and mechanics, of programmes, project management offices and effectively managing any organisational change with your project. The unit can contribute to you achieving internationally recognised accreditation from the Project Management Institute (PMI).
