Subject Title
Project Management II

Subject Description
The incredible pace of change today requires companies worldwide to quickly and successfully adapt to new and constantly evolving environments. This need to adapt and change results in a demand for enhanced project management capabilities as change is accomplished via projects.

Project management is no longer a set of tools to manage a single ad hoc project; it is quickly becoming a core business function.  Expertise in project management is a competitive advantage.

Students of BAB906 will gain an in-depth understanding of this function and will understand the Project Management Institute's (PMI) processes, tools, and techniques and their application in a business environment, particularly with respect to software implementation projects.

The course builds on the foundations acquired in its pre-requisite BAB905 -  Project Management.  Students will further develop their expertise in the use of MS Project. They will also be introduced to SAP software. This course will prepare students to write the CAPM (Certified Associate in Project Management) exam offered by PMI (subject to PMI experiential requirements.)

Credit Status
One credit.
