PMGT2822: Reframing Projects

The possibilities inherent in any project are constrained by the assumptions that we, and other stakeholders, bring to it. This Unit of Study focuses on techniques, such as design thinking, for reframing our understanding of what is possible in any given project in order to enhance value. Upon the completion of this course, students will develop skills to think diversely, take action in ambiguity and ensure projects deliver value to all stakeholders.
