Project Planning and Management (QBUS2350)

UNIT OF STUDY

Project management provides business organisations with a powerful set of tools that improve their ability to plan, implement, and manage activities to accomplish specific organisational objectives. But project management is more than just a set of tools; it is a results-oriented management style that places a premium on building collaborations among a diverse cast of characteristics. This unit introduces students to the planning and management of projects by focusing on a variety of practical topics including project network, PERT, resource scheduling, learning curves, cost and time management in projects, and the use of project management support systems. It also discusses the organisational, leadership, cultural, technological challenges that project managers might face.
