Jane Britton's Teaching
UCL-wide; versions for 3rd / 4th year under-graduate, Masters and Doctoral students.
management is used in both public and private sector organisations to bring
about change and manage innovation. Students will invariably be involved in
projects in their future careers, and will need to know how to use the tools
and techniques of project administration and also understand the environment in
which their project is being undertaken - the organisation(s) involved, customers,
politics, power, people and how to get the best from them. Our course aims to
introduce students to the range of issues that affect projects, the tools and
techniques needed to manage them, and to help students to develop the skills,
knowledge, attributes and behaviours that the project manager needs.
