This is an advanced course that applies project management knowledge and skills to identify and analyze complex project dynamics. Case studies will be used to explore the PMI project domains and project management dynamics. Learning is based on reading case material, the PMBOK Standard, completing project management simulations and the practical application of project management tools and techniques. Students receive hands-on simulation experiences in planning and running projects, and working in learning teams to practice project management roles. Students develop a workable project change management system, exercise project integration and communication skills, and demonstrate the ability to keep an overall project on track. They also demonstrate decision-making skills, with emphasis on making trade-offs based on solid business rationale.
