Project Management 2

This is the study programme for 2019/2020. It is subject to change.


Managing projects by traditional life cycle models may often be difficult, since all projects occur in a context of more or less uncertainty. In this course one learns how different project management life cycle models can be chosen to match the degree of uncertainty in which the project operates. The course also addresses problems in the early phase of projects, problems during project planning and execution plus strategic and organizational issues related to project management.

The student should be able to:
- Plan the execution of a project
- Select appropriate life cycle model
- Evaluate projects
- Understand common organizational problems in projects
