Integrated Project Delivery Approaches - PMGT6812

Year - 2018

This unit draws on the past experience and critical thinking skills of advanced students in the evaluation of various project delivery, organisational change management and sustainability frameworks that can be used to successfully deliver projects. Students will critically examine different methodologies, standards, tools and techniques and consider how these can be integrated into tailored project delivery approaches that will address the specific requirements and context of each project. Contemporary project delivery frameworks and methodologies are covered in the unit - including Lean Six Sigma, the PMBoK Project Lifecycle and Process Groups, PRiNCE2, Rolling Wave Planning, Concurrent Engineering, Organisational Change Management, Stakeholder Management, Agile methods and others. Students will work on project case studies and be given the opportunity to develop tailored project delivery approaches that address the requirements and context of specific projects. Students will identify key elements of the project and organise them into a coherent and persuasive argument about the recommended project delivery approach, encompassing consideration of the various risks, benefits, costs and processes involved. Students enrolling in this unit are expected to have already developed a basic level of ability in forming and communicating critical judgments. These provide the foundation for the analytical abilities required in determining specific project delivery approaches for complex projects with different characteristics.
