Project Management Industrial Project (PMGT5892)


In this simulated project, students are required to apply all of the skills necessary to successfully initiate and plan a project. Working as part of a team, students select a from a range of challenging case studies and are responsible for developing the key project management deliverables, including the project charter, project plan, change control process, status reports and post-planning reviews. Students will facilitate workshops on scoping and risk idenifications, as well as update the project plan in response to a change request or variation. Students will be required to present on project status and to complete a post planning review to identify lessons learned and improvements for future projects. Under the guidance of a senior project management professional, students will be guided through the PMBoK project management lifecycle and learn about real world practices and technqiues. Students will have time in most sessions to work on their assessment tasks whilst recieving guidance and immediate feedback on their progress. Most semesters their is a guest lecture from a highly successful project management practitioner and the unit concludes with practical tips on how to search for a role within the project management profession.
