Drawing upon the knowledge and skills developed from other units in the project management specialisation, this unit examines project management in practice. Students' understanding and experience of real work projects is enhanced by undertaking structured assessments of historical projects in a variety of contexts and partaking in various team-based learning activities. Contemporary alternative methodological approaches are also examined. Students learn how these methodological approaches are currently applied in industry to include a presentation from a project management expert practitioner.
