Project Management and Leadership
This course provides a theoretical and practical perspective on modern project management and leadership in technology-based organizations and forms the conceptual basis to develop "a project leader mindset." The course will focus on strategic project success, as well as project cultures, project organization, and project processes as they are employed in different project types and for different levels of project uncertainty, complexity, and pace. The leadership part of the course is based on the premise that people are the real engine behind project results, and they must be led and motivated in a very unique way. Different leadership styles will be discussed, together with motivation and career issues, in different project and organizational settings.
