All modules on this course are core.
Project, Programme and Portfolio (20 credits)
This module will explore the aspects and integration of project management activities and skills across the initial design, build and commissioning phases of complex products and extensions of these in the lifecycle support systems, coordination and communication in stakeholder engagement, intense markets, and markets that require agility.
Project Organisations and Information Management (20 credits)
In this module you will explore leadership issues, critically reviewing a range of models and practices with particular emphasis on the leader as a communicator and negotiator. You will be introduced to a variety of approaches to organisational analysis thus enabling you to challenge and critique, both organisational practice, and the theories, models and frameworks underpinning management, business and organisation. With a focus on developing you as a competent project leader, the module will develop your understanding of, and ability to apply, organisational leadership and management practices with progression to exploring alternative ways of ‘seeing’ organisation and organising.
People in Project Management (20 credits)
Of all the variables that contribute to the success or failure of projects, the one that is most neglected, and therefore in need of the most attention, is the project team itself. This module aims to provide a clear and concise overview of the key concepts and theories of project, social and organization psychology pertaining to effective project team dynamics. Of equal importance, the module will also explore the key concepts and theories associated with management and organizational behaviour which influence people and project-orientated team working.
Project Change, Risk and Opportunities Management (20 credits)
Effective project management involves the need to identify risks, make appropriate decisions, ensure effective governance, initiate and lead change and develop an engaged and performance focused team. This is the focus of this module, alongside developing your applied knowledge and skills in effective change management, risk management and decision making.
Project Feasibility and Economics (20 credits)
This module is designed to develop your knowledge and ability to practice as a Strategic Project Manager. In this module you will learn the various economic environments surrounding project organisations and project delivery, and examine the resources and constraints relating to strategic and financial decision-making for project formulation, initiation, delivery, and review. This module goes to assist in defining the levels of responsibility and directions of accountability required of a strategic project manager
Research Methods (20 credits)
Your postgraduate degree will culminate in the completion of an individually negotiated work or career based research project. This module will introduce you to effective research practice, providing you with an understanding of the ‘dos’ and ‘don’ts’ that are associated with employing particular approaches to the collection and analysis of data. Awareness of research methodologies and methods will enable you to practice appropriate techniques and to implement methods accurately.
Dissertation (60 credits)
The module will build upon the concepts and theories presented during the research methods module. It will require you to develop, consolidate and apply your independent research, academic study and research project management skills to the investigation of a topic of your own choice that is relevant to your programme of study, your workplace or your future career aspirations.
