INFO3333: Computing 3 Management

This unit teaches students vital skills for an effective professional career: preparing them to eventually be a leader, who ensures that others achieve high-quality outcomes. Building on experiences from earlier units (that covered working in a team, agile development practices, paying attention to needs and characteristics of users, and the value of data) this unit teaches students key concepts needed as a manager, or when working with managers. The focus includes managing projects, managing services, and ensuring governance.
