IFN700 Project Management

This unit will help you develop leadership and project management skills to successfully lead teams in complex and changing environments. The majority of information technology (IT) and organisational change initiatives, such as systems developments and implementations are introduced into organizations through projects, and the success of these projects depends on their effective management. This unit introduces you to a range of traditional and contemporary approaches including Agile and PRINCE2 and develops skills to select which approach is best suited for the particular project and its context. Agile project management will be covered in-depth as an example of a contemporary approach to project management. Agile project management values, principles, and practices that you learn in this unit are transferable to other project management approaches.
