Project management is rapidly becoming a standard way of doing business, whether it be constructing buildings, providing emergency aid services or launching a new product. Organisations have recognised that the powerful set of tools that this result-oriented management style offers have the ability to improve their ability to plan, implement and manage activities, to successfully compete in the global markets. Conversely, competing in global markets influenced by change, innovations and time to market, require organisations to manage multiple projects. To be able to select and manage projects that contribute positively to the strategic direction, an integrative approach is needed. This unit aims to provide students with an insight into project management in organisations. It provides students with an opportunity to gain knowledge in specific tools and techniques of project management; and analyse the process of integrating projects into organisations so as to contribute positively to strategic directions. It also examines some of the current issues in project management and career paths.
