Project Management & Information Technology
Principles of Project Management
This course provides a framework for understanding and applying the philosophy, methodologies, principles, practices, and knowledge of structured project management. It focuses on the application of this framework to initiate, plan, execute, and manage projects and to address business problems and opportunities that an organization may face. Gaining both a theoretical and a practical foundation to manage projects, students participate in a simulation activity throughout the course. They can define a business problem, plan the delivery of a solution, execute that plan, and manage the completion of its deliverables. The content and subject matter are aligned with the current edition of the Project Management Institute's (PMI) A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK).
