Gain exposure to the general concepts and tools needed to manage a broad range of
business projects (M&A integrations, new product launches, geographic expansions,
outsourcing initiatives, IT projects, etc.). This subject is designed for general
managers; you will learn basic qualitative and quantitative skills you can apply throughout
your career. Most MBA graduates will spend a significant portion of their career taking
part in and leading projects. The use of projects in organizations is only increasing.
In many areas, ranging from consulting and investment banking to product development
and service delivery, organizations deliver their primary output through projects.
In other organizations projects are used to implement strategic decisions. Also, projects
provide an opportunity for high-potential individuals to hone and prove their capability
prior to taking on the responsibility of managing a larger business. While every project
has its unique components, in many ways projects in organizations are quite similar.
It is these commonalities that permit us to explore project management generally.
In this subject, we will examine a range of contexts - e.g., outsourcing, product
development, geographic expansion, construction, merger integration - to help students
become familiar with the tools and concepts of project management. The objective of
this subject is to prepare students so that they have the ability to effectively take
part in and lead projects. The goal is to equip individuals across any career concentration,
rather than extend the expertise of project management specialists. Therefore, this
class will be highly interactive consisting of active case discussions each day that
will be supplemented with short lectures when appropriate. We will cover both quantitative
and qualitative aspects of project management.
- utilise theoretical concepts/constructs in development of a project/plan;
- evaluate concepts, theories and standards for project management;
- critically analyse and evaluate systems/practices;
- independently and critically reflect on and assess one's own capabilities and performance,
and make use of one's experience and feedback as appropriate, to support personal
and professional development;
- exercise independent ethical judgment and initiative in practice and research.
