GMBA70-303: Effective Project Management

Description

Innovation is at the core of business success, and it is experienced primarily in a co-located or virtual project-based team environment. The achievement of corporate vision requires decomposing strategic objectives into discrete or program of related projects. PriceWaterhouseCoopers recently found that 97% of organisations believe project management is critical to business performance and the realisation of successful innovation. Using a ‘learning by doing’ approach, this subject explores key tools and techniques essential to project initiation, planning, execution, monitor/control and closure processes based on internationally recognised standards. Scope, time, cost and risk are identified as fundamental elements of effective project management.
