The course will be held on-site at WU!
The course introduces students to Project Management and Leadership in projects. Students learn basic concepts and principles of Project Management and social competencies 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 these methods and concepts on their training projects. We also look into agility and agile teams in projects. This online 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.

Learning outcomes
  • ·   Understanding of projects as temporary organisations developed.
  • ·   Basic knowledge about project management and selected methods is developed.
  • ·   Students are able to structure (not so complex projects) after this course· 
  • ·   Social competencies as a basis for leadership skills are improved in the online setting.
