Course Aim
After completion of the course you should be able to:
  • Describe and exemplify different types of projects, project roles, project management perspectives and project management tools.
  • Analyze and predict the possible outcomes of implementing different types of project management and project management tools in specific situations.
  • Reflect based on personal experience from working in projects and the "state of the art" from the literature in the areas of project management and project methodology, as to what characterizes project management skills of the individual manager as well as in the company.

In the course, students work with all stages of project planning and management both in theory and practice .

After an introduction of different aspects related to project management the students will work in project groups with solving practical project management problems and constructing a detailed and reality based implementation plan for an industrial firm.

Examination is accomplished through compulsory assignments to be done individually and in group.

Due to similar content, the course can not be included in a degree together with the courses O7008N, O0002N (IEO026) or other course with similar content. Students must register for the courses themselves, or contact ETS educational administration, not later than three days after the quarter commences. Failure to do so can result in the place being lost. This rule also applies to students with a guaranteed place.
