MGMT 8530 - Managing Projects in Complex Environments♦


(4 cr.) In consideration of the growing complexities of the global business environment, there is a pressing need for leaders with diverse skill sets who know how to see a project through a multitude of challenges in a rapidly changing business environment. Students in this course explore the theory and practice of how to manage projects in such environments. Through extensive reading and literature review, students assess effective project management styles, critical factors for project success, organizational support systems that enhance projects, earned value analysis, the maturity of modern project management, and ethics in project execution. They also examine critical issues of budgeting, schedules, technical planning, and control methods, and they investigate the function of project management software in anticipating and managing the challenges of complex environments. (Prerequisite(s): RSCH 8101M [may be taken concurrently].)
