PMGT5850: Project Management Capstone Project

The capstone project aims to provide students with the opportunity to plan and execute a defined scope of work that fosters the development of practical skills relevant to project management. Students work in small, semi-random team to deliver an assigned project for the semester. The concepts covered depend on the nature of the project. The project outcomes will be presented in a report that is clear, coherent and logically structured. The project will be judged on the extent and quality of the student's contribution to the project and the product deliverables, particularly on their understanding of the business or organisational context and their critical, perceptive and constructive reflection/feedback on his/her work and that of others. Student teams will also be required to present the results of their project work to their peers and supervisors either face to face or by production of a video recording of their presentation.
