The start of the project journey, introduces projects, what they are, how they come about, responses to problems and planning. It explores the role of key players including the project manager, feasibility studies, decision making and project life cycles.
To write about projects, we have to define what they are and describe how they arise. This course will concentrate on describing what a project is, and how it can arise as a part of a planning process, as a response to a changing environment, as a business opportunity, as a problem or as a newly identified requirement.
Projects often appear to be mysterious: it can be difficult to define exactly what a project is, and to the man or woman in the average organisation they seem to appear rather in the same way that mushrooms sprout – overnight. They are very diverse, and may range from one or two people making an effort over a few days or weeks to dozens or even hundreds of people working over a period of years.
After studying this course, you should be able to:
define what a project is
- understand the importance of risk
- define the questions a decision maker needs to ask
- list the main activities and tasks of a project manager
- consider phased development, prototype approaches or agile methods.
