Project Planning and Governance - PMGT6871

Year - 2020

Drawing upon prior experience in the planning and control of projects this unit of study provides practitioners from a wide range of project application areas with the opportunity to review, develop and critique their understanding, skills and practice relative to a range of recognised standards and approaches for the governance, planning and control of projects. While providing an overview of the breadth of responsibility for the management of an individual project the focus in this unit of study will be on planning, monitoring and control of scope, time, and cost, with some coverage of quality management and procurement. Structures and requirements for governance of projects, including accounting and reporting lines, and the need for alignment to the business case are addressed. Reference is made to trends in the management of projects and to the need for variation in approach relative to project type and context.
