BMGT10150 Project Management

Academic Year 2019/2020

In recent years, project management has become increasingly more significant in an organisational context. Projects drive business activities in a wide variety of sectors from the public and private sectors to not for profit charities and organisations. Regardless of the product or service, good project management techniques will provide a result that is delivered on time and within budget. In this regard, the module will cover topics such as planning, scheduling, budgeting, quality, leadership and risk management which are some of the key issues that need to be understood and practiced by managers to realise successful project delivery.
