This unit introduces students to the foundations of project management in business contexts. It provides an overview and practical understanding of different project management approaches, ranging from structured frameworks such as the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK) to light-weight techniques such as Agile or Lean Management. Students learn how to select appropriate projects based on their alignment with an organisation's strategy and then how to manage those projects successfully from initiation through execution to completion. The unit explores both the technical and behavioural aspects of project management and students gain experience in critically analysing the application of techniques in specific business contexts. As organisations increasingly structure their activities on a project basis, the unit is of value to a range of discipline specialisations.
