Content
The use of projects and project management continues to grow in our society and its organizations. We are able to achieve goals through project organization that could be achieved only with the greatest of difficulty if organized in traditional ways. Business regularly uses project management to accomplish unique outcomes with limited resources under critical time constraints. In the service sector of the economy, the use of project management to achieve an organization’s goals is even more common. A relatively new growth area in the use of project management is the use of projects as a way to accomplishing organizational change.The course of project management quickly moves from theory to practice, allowing students to expand their knowledge base of projects in the context of managerial perspective. The classroom activities include both the traditional lecture approach along with problem based learning techniques where students solve cases in teams.
