SSUD71-103: Principles of Project Management

Description

Managing complex projects involves an understanding of the processes, techniques and tools used in the discipline of project management. This subject provides an overview of the discipline by exploring these systematically using the internationally recognised Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide) as a foundation. Project integration, scope, time, cost, risk, quality, human resource, communication, procurement, stakeholder and, looking forward, environmental management reflect the generic knowledge areas that combine to support successful project implementation and social responsibility. Students undertake a three-day on-campus workshop plus several guest lecture events as part of the delivery of this subject, which are aimed at linking theory to practice and managing project change.  Students demonstrate competency in project integration management in particular by preparing a detailed project plan for an authentic case study with the help of a personal 'coach' to provide individual direction and advice.
