SSUD71-410: The Digital Project Manager

Description

Digital project management is about making things happen in a digital world. The role of a digital project manager is to bring multidisciplinary teams together through effective leadership, empowerment, facilitation and communication. It’s a complex role that requires a unique skill set. The job requires an understanding from a strategic perspective of why you should do a project, what technology could be used to achieve it, what it could look like, how it could work, and importantly for clients, how much it will cost and when it could be delivered. This subject explores the emerging use of Lean and Agile mindsets for project management, where speed to market is often a priority and sustainable work practices are a given. Comparisons are made between traditional Waterfall methods of managing projects and more adaptive frameworks that support rapid product deployment. Team collaboration to deliver outcomes that solve client problems and meet market requirements is key to being agile. This is the future of project management: responsive, disruptive, nimble and customer-focused.
