PROJ-610 Introduction to Project Management

This course introduces the principles of project management. It examines the broad field of project management and the relationships between project management knowledge areas, process groups, and component processes. There is a focus on developing competencies and personal behaviors, which increases the likelihood of delivering projects that meet stakeholders' requirements. Identifying various project stakeholders and defining the business problem or opportunity are key aspects in the evaluation and prioritization phases of initiating a project amidst changing business conditions. Students will learn the process of properly initiating a project with elements as appropriate: internal (project charter, kickoff meeting) and external (turnover meeting, contracts, and agreements). Application and implementation of course theories and concepts in an organizational setting will be addressed through embedded, experiential learning experiences and activities within the course.
