Course Objectives This course aims at introducing the students to techniques that allow them to start, develop, complete, and implement projects more efficiently and effectively. It helps the students to become more aware of the relationship between the project manager’s talents and contribution of the project personnel for and the successful performance of the entire project. It tries to enable the students to establish a sounding control over the budget of the project, by making them to recognize when and why a project is not proceeding according to plan both financially and schedule vise , and to know if the plan needs to be revised or replaced with one that is more realistic. It, also, suggests some ways to conclude effective contracts and to avoid risks and conflicts.
Course Learning Outcomes The students who succeeded in this course;
  • Students will be able to present a systematic approach to planning, performance, and control of projects.
  • Students will recognize the importance of leadership style and inter-team cooperation for establishing a sound control over the project.
  • Students will be able to differentiate among the plans to develop methods for converting ideas into a product or service.
  • Students will interpret the importance and the requirements of team work for managing projects successfully.
Course Content Elements and phases of project management; functions (planning, staffing, scheduling, monitoring, and control) and techniques (CPM, PERT, etc.) of project management; software tools for project management; project cost control and time/resource management; leadership styles, conflict and risk management.
