Projects are key to the success of organisations be it through the introduction of new products, the implementation of new processes or the opening of new markets. It is not enough though for a project to be delivered in isolation. Consideration must be given to how projects relate to other projects and the broader organisation. The foundation of this unit is the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK) where the essential components of project management and how to manage a project to success are covered. Building upon this students learn how to maximise the value of the project. Students come to understand the benefits, and mechanics, of programmes, project management offices and effectively managing any organisational change with a project. This unit can contribute to the achievement of internationally recognised accreditation from the Project Management Institute (PMI).
