PM 502 Project Leadership in Situational Business Context

Application of project management practices, methods, processes, and tools can vary significantly across industry sectors and business context (such as product, service or infrastructure development). The same is true concerning other environmental factors affecting the project such as where a project manager intercepts the project or program (beginning, middle, or project recovery), the velocity of implementation (industry typical lifecycle or fast-track), and whether it is a domestic or international project. This course explores the commonalities and differences in applying project management principles given these varying business and environmental factors, future trends in project and program management, and critical skills and competencies that are needed today and in the future for project managers to succeed. A personal skills inventory and leadership assessment by each student is a component of this course.
