The course introduces students to Project Management. Students learn basic concepts and principles of Project Management and social competences as basis for Project Leadership. The course covers project management methods such as project objectives plan, work break down structure, project scheduling, project stakeholder management, project organisation and roles. Students apply theses methods and concepts on their training projects. We also look into agility and agil teams in projects. This interactive course is both, theoretically based and hands on. By that it allows insights into the Project Management practice and enables students to reflect benefits and limits of project management.
