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.
