Start date



In a competitive business environment, industrial companies struggle to improve their record of completing their projects on time and in the planned budget. The temporary nature of projects stands in contrast with business as usual which are repetitive and permanent functional activities. In practice, the management of these two systems is different, and requires the development of distinct technical skills and management strategies. Project Management is concerned with the application of knowledge, skills, tools and techniques to project activities to meet project requirements. This module aims to develop your skills and knowledge in the area of project management, including initiating, planning, executing, controlling, and closing the work of a team to achieve specific goals and meet specific success criteria.
