Focusing on the management of projects using an agile approach to respond to the continuous changes that affect project capabilities and performance. Although any project can be managed using agile project management, projects with a high degree of uncertainty obtain the most benefits from this approach (e.g., R&D projects). The course covers SCRUM and expands it by articulating the human and business factors that make successful agile project management. Planning and executing a short agile project is required.
Exploration of the systems approach to planning, scheduling, control, design, evaluation and leadership of projects in technology-based organizations. The fundamental tools and techniques of project management; the role of the project manager; project management systems; project selection; project life cycle; project monitoring and control; project management evaluation and auditing; project risk and failure analysis; contextual nature of project management; project knowledge.
Targeted at engineering managers who actively participate in the capital budgeting process and project justification. Topics include capital budgeting techniques (including multi-attribute decision making), utility theory, justification of new technologies, and current research in engineering economics. Reading and application of current research in the field is stressed. Case studies are used. Oral presentations and team project required.
Seminar discussions and team projects expose students to the concepts, skills, characteristics and emotional composition of the effective and successful leaders in the 21st century. Course objectives will be achieved by classroom discussion of the assigned material, candid self-assessment, experimental exercises and analysis of the actions of leaders, as described in case studies and literature. Areas of exploration include the fundamentals of leadership, ethical leadership, social capital, emotional intelligence and three-dimensional leadership.
