Subject of course

The lecture's theoretical part will be held as a presentation, which in the very beginning deals with an introduction into project management as a whole. Furthermore a project s characteristics will be explained as well as the involved actor s duties and responsibilities. In succession the lecture will deal with the following branches of project management:

  • Integration Management,

Especially Cost, Risk and Quality Management will be presented in detail. Moreover various valuable project management techniques will be demonstrated, which are regularly used in practice. The lecture s practical part, which is composed of three separate exercises, has to be edited in groups of four students. The first exercise is to write a composition about a special project management topic to be defined by the lecture management. The second and third exercise will deal with practical project management techniques introduced in the theoretical part. The solutions of all exercises have to be firstly submitted to the lecture management via e-mail and secondly presented in a submission conversation. To conclude the lecture both the theoretical and the practical part have to be passed positively.
