Managing Projects ZAA233

Hobart, Launceston, Cradle Coast


In this unit you will investigate approaches to design and delivery of projects in industry contexts. This will include identifying  and analysing relevant concepts, tools and processes used in the formulation, delivery and management of projects. Investigations will focus on practical examples and incorporate analysis and design of your own major project through the delivery of the unit. You will develop skills in analysis of project management processes and problem solve to formulate a project utilising a range of tools.

In conjunction with the discipline theory, this unit builds on concepts of learning through practice in Year 1 of study by introducing you to more complex learning experiences.

You will be introduced to:

  • discipline-based skills and knowledge in dynamic practice situations. This will include authentic and purposeful, industry-related experiences
  • concepts of managing effective relationships and communicating with others
  • the development and use of adaptive leadership skills and how these skills relate to innovative and entrepreneurial practice
  • the nature of responsible, accountable and reflective workplace skills, and creative and critical thinking relevant to para-professional practice

You will exercise self-awareness, initiative and judgement to manage yourself and professional relationships effectively. The application of tacit knowledge and capabilities will be reflected in a Practice Manual.
