DDBA 8572 - Seminar in Project-Based Strategic Leadership
(3 sem. cr.) Independent scholars in this seminar course examine the forces of complexity and uncertainty and their impact (past, present, and future) on the project management profession. Topics include a retrospective analysis of research and practice over the past several decades and the examination of the increasing focus on the strategic value of projects and project leadership. Because the global business environment is characterized as increasingly complex and uncertain, and projects are directly linked to the organization’s strategic goals and competitive position, project management practitioners and researchers also learn about leading the continued development and maturity of the project management profession.
