Special Topics in Management: Project Management

Organizations perform projects in order to achieve a set of objectives. Project management is the application of knowledge, skills and techniques to fulfill project objectives and requirements. Whether it is to redesign an existing process, develop a new product, plan an event or deliver a service to a customer, project management is necessary to most effectively meet schedule, cost and scope expectations. This course will cover traditional project management practice guidelines defined by the Project Management Institute’s (PMI) PMBOK® - Sixth Edition, including project initiation and planning, executing and controlling projects as well as specific knowledge areas that contribute to project success. Additionally, specialized and contemporary project management practices such as Agile, Scrum and Hybrid will be explored. Students will apply concepts through class assignments and case studies as well as the development of an actionable project plan.
