The Project Management module from 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.
This module 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.
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.
