Whether you are a project manager, an aspiring project manager or a member of a project team, this online module will support you in improving your practice and making your contribution to the project even more effective. You will gain an understanding of the essential steps in the project life cycle and reflect on the techniques available to you and how they can be applied. You will have the opportunity to review, in the light of your new knowledge and experience, a project on which you have already worked.

Vocational relevance

The Project Management course at The Open University UK takes a broad approach to technological projects and will be relevant to project managers and those wishing to increase their knowledge about project management. The tools and techniques presented will be of use to project managers and team members in improving the effectiveness of their teams.

Programme Structure

  • This module considers the whole life cycle of projects. The principles and processes are contextualised through reference to case studies and you are encouraged to develop your own reflections on the applicability, or not, of the principles and processes to projects within your own organisation, industry or area of practice.
  • The module includes case studies from a variety of technological settings. Throughout the life cycle the recurring topics of stakeholders, finance, risk, people, project administration and quality are discussed in the context of what the project manager is doing, responding to or monitoring.
  • This module is presented wholly online. Your study is directed from the module website with a study planner to guide you through the text materials, the activities and the assessment. Where you need to study additional materials, such as case studies, articles and journal papers you will be directed to these.
