Content

The unit integrates the historical development of the project management profession with current contemporary practice within an internationalised project management field. The theory and practice of project management is applied through a case study approach and is uniquely underpinned by knowledge of the philosophy of urban ecologies to achieve a balance between broader social, cultural, economic and environmental objectives as well as project specific time, cost and quality goals. Students will be challenged to critique various organisational structures, such as traditional/classical organization; pure product/projectised organization and matrix organization, within the built environment context of project organisation. Strategic, operational and technical challenges in the field of project management shall be examined through such topics as project planning, life-cycle planning; fast-tracking, network scheduling techniques, including PERT/CPM; compression, levelling, internationalisation, stakeholder management and integrated project information management. Resource management is also explored through 'softer' themes  including project team capabilities and matching, team leadership and team culture  as strategies are considered to manage conflict resolution the as it impacts on successful projects. Students will focus on the importance of reporting, presentation and negotiation through a series of case based study exercises.
