'Project Management' in AUSTIN is designed for anyone working in a project team environment or engineers who see an increasing management component in their work. This course will equip you with general project management skills to help you to deal with problems that can occur. It's applicable to any field of work, especially those with a high technological content. You'll also gain practical experience of using project management techniques, including the use of a software tool, with a real project of your own. The course topics include project initiation, risk, estimating and contracts, planning, human factors, project execution, and standard methods. The Project Management course is also highly relevant to the new emerging market of project management in professional services like Human Resources and Finance which is largely being driven by government modernisation and large scale outsourcing. The primary challenge of project management is to achieve all of the project goal and objectives while honoring the preconceived project constraints. Typical constraints are scope, time, and budget. The secondary-and more ambitious-challenge is to optimize the allocation and integration of inputs necessary to meet pre-defined objectives.
