DDBA 8570 - Seminar in Program and Portfolio Management


(3 sem. cr.) Students in this seminar examine the evolving discipline of project-based program and portfolio management and the business competencies required to manage complex projects in dynamic, distributed, and global environments. Among the topics included are approaches to project selection, evaluation, and cancelation using stage-gate models. Students in the course examine how organizational attributes such as systems affect employee behavior, how to stimulate creativity and innovation in projects, and how all of these approaches can be unified to effectively manage a portfolio of projects to achieve the strategic objectives of the organization.
