Project Planning and Management
Professionals, whether they are working in the sciences, business, engineering, information technology, health or education, typically work in teams to complete projects. This course introduces and examines the technical and socio-cultural dimensions of Project Management. Students experience all aspects of the Project Life Cycle through the completion of integrated unifying exercises. A conceptual framework underpinning Project Management is presented in the context of the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK). These professional standards are supported by the Australian Institute of Project Managers (AIPM) and their international counterparts.
