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. The topics covered include stakeholders, finance, risk, people, project administration and quality.
This Project Management module at The Open University UK considers the whole life cycle of projects, from initiation, through to planning, scheduling, execution, handover and review. 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. You will review and evaluate frameworks and standards.
