PMGT3858: Adapting to Project Context

There is more than one way to manage a project. However many organisations become entrenched in standardisation that may no longer meet their needs, including consideration of change required for the project to be successful. This Unit of Study introduces students to a range of different approaches to project management, building the ability to critically question current practice and improve organisational outcomes.
