This is a survey course introducing project management as a profession and an academic field of study. It provides the foundation for more advanced project management courses. It is a prerequisite to other courses in the degree program unless permission is granted. The student is introduced to the Project Management Body of Knowledge, (PMBOK Guide), as well as other international standards. Students will examine key tools and methodologies in use to manage large, complex projects and explore how these tools and techniques can be used to assess the project's overall status, its variance from the project plan and evaluate alternative recovery scenarios. Students will be introduced to the roles of project and program managers in today's enterprise and the tradeoffs they make among triple constraints of scope, time and cost.
