TDDD29 IT-Project Management
Several challenges have to be reached to successfully manage and lead IT- projects both in enterprises and public organizations of today. This course aims to give students knowledge in how to analyse issues in managing projects and the organizational challenges that the implementation of new IT- based applications demand. After the course the students shall:
- be able to analyse, explain and examine issues related to the implementation of IS /IT that IT-project leaders confront with
- be able to develop and enhance knowledge about leading projects and being leader of IT projects
- be able to identify and explain organizational prerequisites that stimulate possibilities as well as hindrances for cooperation between the project and the organization’ IT- infrastructure, as well as how these issues influence the implementation of the chosen applications.
- analyse, examine and explain the role of the IT-project leader
The course consists of five lectures that introduce central theoretical concepts as well as practical project management methods and approaches. Moreover, central in this course is a student group project. The goal of the project is to analyze a failed project and re-write a project plan for that project (with a focus on managing the particular problems of the previous project). Five lessons introduce project aims and tasks and discuss specific parts of the project plan. The seminars are group activities where each group will discuss and reflect on project management in relation to their project and project report. During the the last lesson each group will present their project and project management approaches.
