Project Leadership

This course is designed to provide students with insight into project human resource management and leadership, with a basis on the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide) Module 9. Project human resource management is a critical element of successful projects and from initiation through execution and closure of a project, project managers must ensure that staffing plans are developed, and managed. Leadership is a people activity and is distinct from the administrative paper work or planning activities. This course will explore the theories of leadership and provide some application through case studies of leadership on a project team. Students will learn the core concepts, as well as tools and practices to be employed for effective project human resource management and leadership.
