Description

In this course, students will learn how to use the concepts, tools and techniques of project management in order to successfully manage system development projects. System development project failures are generally failures of management, not failures of technology. Good management, along with an understanding of the appropriate use of technology, is therefore essential. Students will learn, in particular, how to apply the concepts, tools and techniques of project management in today's dynamic, digital business environment, where projects must be brought to completion under increasingly compressed timeframes and where decisions must be made under conditions of uncertainty.
