This course introduces the context, rationale, strategy and tactics of project management from the perspectives of key stakeholders. The main model followed it is the international Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK - US Based PMI), however comparisons are made with PRINCE2. Participants will be expected to relate the application of PMBOK directly to projects from their experience, and as a course assignment will be able to apply what they have learnt to an actual work place project. The context and learning of the course will prepare participants with competencies to operate in a range of industries and apply the project management skills to projects in a variety of industries, including engineering, information technology, consulting, production, procurement, maintenance, logistics and supply chain, defence, construction, and manufacturing. The focus on providing competence in core areas of stakeholder, scope, time, cost and quality management, and facilitating areas of risk, procurement, HR, integration, and communication management is to provide competence in participants to confidentially deal with the ever growing challenges of modern day project management. PMBOK will be applied in developing competence suitable for a range of industries.
