Projects are increasingly prevalant in every organisation and industry. They are the way in which changes are made, products and services created, lauched and improved. Technology drives innovation and change, and sustains buisness operations.

IT Project Management therefore is a key part of your toolkit whether as an entreprenuer, consultant or analyst. We all do project management whether it is formally or informally. This introductory module provides students with the basic project management skills for both personal and professional success.

This module will reflect on real world practice, taught by an industry practitioner.

Introduction to IT Project Management presents the key concepts, tools and techniques which are employed by both public and private sectors to successfully deliver change and innovation.  Within this module, precedence is given to the IT context for project management, reflecting the criticality of business systems, infrastructure and application management. 

This module introduces the key principles of IT project management, including introduction to Agile and Scrum approaches.  Students have the opportunity to learn tools and techniques to initiate, plan and manage projects and programmes successfully.

Through a blended learning approach of lectures, seminars and case studies, students are able to grasp all the essential elements of good project management.  These skills can then be applied and honed through use in coursework, dissertations, internships and future career opportunities.
