Modern Project Management (MAN33)


    In a more and more globalised and fast paced business environment, increasingly companies have to respond to that challenge with strategic systematic approaches, without losing flexibility. Without professional and successful project management this is not conceivable.
    This course provides insights into the basic principles of modern project management and relates these concepts to the context of the performing organisation.
    The whole course design is related to the question of what 'project success' means.

    Course Level: Foundation / Skill
