Module idea
One of the most prominent contemporary trends in general management (strategic and operational management) is the increasingly frequent project-based work organisation in the private and public sectors. Project management in the twenty-first century is associated with the implementation of changes in organisations, ensuring economic benefits of project results and positive social and environmental impact for present and future generations.
Studies of subjects and materials allow a better understanding of the advantages of applying the PMI, IPMA, PRINCE2 and other international project management standards and the new alternative methodologies (AGILE, SCRUM).
The main objectives of the module include the analysis of the project management specifics of different sectors, success assumptions and efficient implementation methods and to decide how the corporate strategy implemented through projects and how projects are managed in the corporate context.
