ICT Project Management and Modelling KIT203

Note:

Introduction

This unit provides both a theoretical and practical overview of project management as it relates to technology-oriented projects. Specifically, this unit will introduce project management principles, techniques and tools that can be used to guide traditional business-oriented ICT projects, as well as those adaptations that are designed to support development of more creative ICT projects. A set of project outputs that are based on best-practice and industry standards will be developed by students, as a training tool in preparation for undertaking real ICT-oriented projects.

Completing this unit will provide you with the opportunity to apply for the PMBOK Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM) professional industry certification via completion of a certification exam.

Students need to get permission from the unit coordinator to enrol in the online offering. This online offering is primarily for students enrolled in the Diploma of ICT Professional Practice (including the Undergraduate Certificate in ICT Professional Practice) who might need to complete the unit online. Online students will need to attend online tutorials.
